Village Warns of Burglars in the Area

The Village of La Grange Wednesday sent out a community alert, warning residents of residential burglaries that have been reported recently in the area over the last three weeks.

The offenders will typically knock on a door to verify that no one is at home prior to forcing entry, according to the alert.

"Although La Grange has not experienced a similar incident, we want our residents to be informed and vigilant. It is imperative that if you should see anything 'suspicious' in your neighborhood, that you call 9-1-1 immediately. Supply the best description possible to the 9-1-1 operator but do not attempt to confront the suspicious persons, or place yourselves in harm’s way," the alert reads.

A task force of municipal officers has been activated and is actively investigating these incidents.

Residents with questions can contact the La Grange Police Department at (708) 579-2333 (press zero for dispatch).
