ROCKDALE — Police say a traffic violator got confused whose house he was at earlier this month.
About 7:45 p.m. March 8, a patrol officer saw a white Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the 400 block of Moen Avenue and checked to find that the license plate was suspended, according to reports.
When the officer turned on his emergency lights in the 100 block of Central Avenue, Colby D. Logan, 25, pulled into a driveway and said he it was his “buddy Miguel’s house.”
The officer went back to his squad car, confirmed Logan’s license is also suspended and returned to the Monte Carlo.
“I once again asked why he pulled into this driveway and he relayed to me that it was his ‘buddy’ Jimmy’s residence,” the officer reported.
Logan, of 6712 Langsford Lane in Plainfield, was arrested on a charge of driving on a suspended license and released on bond. His Monte Carlo was impounded.
The bad luck continues
Police say Logan arrived at the police station the following evening to pay the towing fee.
When Logan was told he’d need someone with a valid driver’s license with him to have the car released, he left and returned with his cousin, Chassity M. Collins, 23, according to reports.
Collins’ license was good, but a computer check also showed she was wanted on an outstanding warrant for shoplifting.
Collins, of 2305 St. Francis Ave. in Joliet, was booked into the county jail and released the next day after posting bond.
She then picked up her cousin’s car, police said.
Look out, angels!
FRANKFORT TOWNSHIP — Police say two men chose an odd time and method to pay their respects March 15.
At 1:44 a.m. Will County Sheriff’s deputies were called after a white Toyota Corolla was seen driving into St. John’s Cemetery, at 203rd Street and Wolf Road, and turning off its headlights.
According to reports, deputies arrived to find the Corolla about 10 feet off the roadway, stuck in the snow.
“I located a (broken) plastic and concrete angel, approximately 10 inches by 10 inches, wedged between the driver’s front tire and the ground,” a deputy reported.
Curtis P. Smith, 40, of Houston, Texas, and his cousin, Edward D. Wagner, 45, of 1229 Chicago Ave. in Evanston, said they had been at a family party when they decided to visit their grandmother’s grave, reports said.
Both men were charged with vandalism.
