A Holiday Safety Alert from the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office

Corporal Michael Urso of the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office Community Resource Unit has asked me, Doug Elwell, President of the BHA, to email out the following statement to all residents of Butterfield. Please forward this one to a friend and encourage them to subscribe to future alerts by emailing us at butterfieldhomeownersassoc@gmail.com:

Though the Butterfield East neighborhood is usually very peaceful and crime-free, recently two car burglaries occurred in our neighborhood. These burglaries took place on November 13th – 14th between the hours of 11:00pm and 7:30am, during which time two unlocked vehicles were burglarized. Items were taken including money and a wallet. No suspect information at this time, however DuPage County Sheriff’s Evidence Technicians were contacted and processed the scenes. Please remember to lock your vehicles while parked in their driveways, and never leave anything valuable inside, especially in plain sight. With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching, kids will be home from college and students will be on break. In past years, during Thanksgiving break, vehicle burglaries have increased due to being unlocked while parked in driveways.

If a suspicious person or vehicle is observed, call 911. A description of the vehicle, location and occupants, as well as the license plate number, would be helpful. DO NOT APPROACH.
