BLOTTER: Police reports published Nov. 1

Burglary investigated on LaSalle Avenue

Police called to area for reported burglary in progress about 1 a.m. Wednesday on the 1500 block of LaSalle Avenue. Witnesses said five men had fled the home through an open front door and one of them was carrying a box.

The resident said they were sleeping in a second-floor room when they heard a loud pounding. The resident exited his apartment and saw the men running from the building. The men, or possibly teens, fled west and north between houses.

The resident of the first-floor apartment burglarized reported to police that two plastic containers of loose change, about $500 in one container and $750 in Canadian currency in another, were taken. 

Officers picked up a possible suspect in the 1500 block of LaSalle Avenue but it was later determined he was not involved.

 

Teen charged in connection with armed robbery

Falls police arrested a teen in connection with the Wednesday night robbery of a convenience store on 19th Street.

Officers were called to the store about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday and two employees reported that two men wearing masks covering their mouthes and noses came into the store when no customers were inside and demanded money. One of the men held a handgun while the other jumped over the counter and took the till and money from a register after employees opened it. He also grabbed cigarettes before the two men fled the store, running west on Welch Avenue.

Upon responding to the scene, a detective and an officer began walking west on Welch Avenue and noticed a gate open on the 1700 block. Walking through the yard and into the alley, they spotted several people near a car parked in the alley. Two men, one of whom matched the description of one of the suspects, quickly began walking away, then run from the area.
