OMGPD: ‘They Stole My Pot’; Ribbon-Wrapped Poultry Carcass

A collection of odd, quirky and sometimes just plain weird crime reports from around the area.

OMGPD: ‘They Stole My Pot’; Ribbon-Wrapped Poultry Carcass

Police Find Poultry Carcass Wrapped in Ribbon

An Elmhurst police officer saw a person climb a small hill at the southwest corner of Grand Avenue and Lake Street at about 5:20 p.m. Jan. 12. The officer said he thought this was suspicious because he didn't see a vehicle nearby, and it is an odd place to be on foot. By the time the officer got to the hill to check things out, the person was gone, but there were fresh footprints in the snow. At the top of the hill was "unidentifiable kind of poultry carcass" wrapped in ribbon on butcher's paper, police said.
