Police Blotter: Burglars Ransack Deerfield Home

The following arrest information was supplied by the Deerfield Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.


A Deerfield resident returned to a Timber Hill home Saturday to find a ransacked bedroom, according to Deerfield Police reports. 

Leaving the house earlier, the homeowner returned to notice a door ajar and a patio door unlocked before going to the bedroom to find it ransacked, according to the report. The victim then called police. 

Jewelry, electronic equipment and other items were missing, according to the report. Police determined the burglar entered through a basement window and left through the patio door. 

A motor vehicle parked at 1750 Lake Cook Road was burglarized Jan. 15, according to Deerfield Police reports. 

After discovering the “driver’s side door popped,” the vehicle owner called police who came to investigate, according to the report. Power tools and electronic equipment were missing. 


Electronic equipment belonging to a Whole Foods employee was taken from the store’s break room sometime between 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m. Jan. 16, according to Deerfield Police reports

The victim placed the equipment with her other belongings in the break room and found it missing later in the day, according to the report. She told police it was explained to her by company personnel “it would be hard to tell if someone took” it. 

After the victim reported the incident to police, officers went to Whole Foods asking for video footage and a list of employees who were working at the time, according to the report. The team leader told police he was not sure he could provide what was requested and would call if and when it was ready.  According to police, nothing was delivered by noon Thursday. 

Driver’s License Infraction 

Brigido Alvarez-Salgado was arrested Jan. 15 for driving without a valid driver’s license and driving without illuminated headlights, according to Deerfield Police reports.

Police observed Alvarez-Salgado driving westbound on Lake Cook Road at Pine Avenue without his headlights illuminated, according to the report. After making the stop, police learned he did not have a valid license. He was released on bond and will appear in Lake County Court at 10:30 a.m. March 4 in Park City.

I have seen many non-residents recently, leaving notices about lawn care, gutter cleaning, etc. It might be a good idea to make companies photo register their people and have them wear a distinctive armband to show they are registered. After all these guys soon discover who is home and who is not - and if any are bad guys it might cause them to look elsewhere for a target if they are printed and registered.
