The victim told police the car was parked late Wednesday afternoon and upon returning to the vehicle the next morning, the passenger side window was smashed and the door was damaged, which appeared to be caused from another car door.

• The Elburn Jewel/Osco reported on Saturday, Oct. 15 that 20 cans of Enfamil baby formula with an estimated value of $400, one box of Huggies diapers valued at $24, and three bags of Huggies diapers valued at $45 were taken from the store.

Sugar Grove
• Sugar Grove Police on Oct. 17 performed a traffic stop for improper lane usage on a vehicle traveling south on Route 47. Police then noted that the driver of the vehicle, Caleb Russell, 34, of the 7200 block of Galena Road in Bristol, Ill., was falling asleep while answering their questions.
After Russell performed a field sobriety test, police requested that a Kane County Sheriff canine perform a search of Russell’s vehicle. The canine alerted police to the vehicle’s center console, where they discovered a small, knotted baggie that contained cannabis. Police also located a bladder and tube containing synthetic urine, which Russell said was used to defeat drug tests.
Russell was issued an Ordinance Violation for possession of cannabis and released from the scene.
