• Sugar Grove Police on Feb. 12 responded to a call on the 900 block of Pinecrest Drive, where a resident claimed approximately $10,000 in gold coins was stolen from his home.

The man had removed the gold coins from his safe in August and placed them in several boxes in his basement office with the intention of photographing and cataloging the coins in order to organize his assets. The coins would then be placed in a safety deposit box and insured.

The theft is believed to have taken place between August 2010 and Feb. 12, 2011.

    It has been 2 issues and not a word about the lawsuit filed against the police department. Is this because this paper is a shill for the village or because of incompetency?

    I agree with Whiskymac. The police get a verbal lashing here from time to time because they are bullies and are looking to attain quotas. Occasionally I have a friendly encounter, but rarely.
    I would love to hear more feedback from the community on this lawsuit, without people from the paper getting into a defensive posture or maybe even removing derogatory posts.

    The guy got pulled over for speeding. He caused his own situation. Case closed!

    If he was speeding why didn’t he get a ticket ? Maybe we have way to many cops ( 22! ) with nothing better to do..
