Stolen Vacuum, Toilet Parts and Gnomes

A look at unusual crimes in our Patch region this week

Local police departments provided the following reports. In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt.

Someone put foaming detergent in a water fountain at the Northbrook Village Green.

An upright vacuum was stolen from the front yard of a Glencoe home. 

A AAA card and State Farm proof of insurance documents were stolen from an unlocked garage in Evanston

Someone stole seven garden gnomes from the front lawn of a home in Morton Grove.

Two men stole two toilet flush valves from the restroom of an Evanston restaurant. 

Someone burnt a two-inch hole through a screen door in Skokie.

Police said a truck was reported stolen from the Metals USA parking lot in Northbrook. The truck was carrying about 26,000 pounds of steel beams, valued at $20,000.

Two men got in a physical altercation in a Skokie grocery store after one accused the other of cutting in the checkout line.

QUAVAC (The Netherlands) has been the market leader of vacuum technology for wastewater disposal for decades. QUAVAC has patented this technology under the name Vacuflow®. Wastewater is transported to the vacuum station by means of aspirated air using negative pressure. Compared to the traditional natural gravity and pressure system sewerage methods Vacuflow­® has several advantages. It is easy in maintenance, environmentally friendly, easily expandable and blockage is impossible. Moreover, Vacuflow® sewerage is often applied in certain situations where no other system is possible. Such sites include marinas, harbour, islands, rural areas and industrial areas.
