The public is reminded that criminal charges are not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
“While these arrests clear some of the residential burglaries affecting the Village of Mount Prospect lately, residents are still strongly encouraged to be vigilant and call
9-1-1 immediately if they see or hear anything or anyone suspicious in their neighborhood,” commented Crime Prevention Officer Greg Sill. “Residents are also reminded to lock their doors and windows when they are not at home and use radios or televisions to create noise to make it appear that someone is home,” added Sill.
