• ARREST: A Falls man was arrested following a suspicious person complaint at 10:10 a.m. Friday in the 2700 block of Woodlawn Avenue. Anthony Taibi, 24, 2439 LaSalle Ave., was charged with second-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and criminal possession of a hypodermic needle after a man phoned police to say a man wearing a black coat and hood was walking around his neighbor's property. When police arrived, the witness told officers the suspicious person fled toward a nearby alley. Officers caught a man matching the description of the person walking south on Hyde Park Boulevard crossing Forrest Avenue appearing out of breath and sweating despite a temperature between 20 and 30 degrees outside. Police said the man responded to questioning by saying "What did I do? I didn't do anything. What's going on?" The victim, a 62-year-old man, said the back door to the house was badly damaged and tools were found on the floor, though nothing appeared missing from inside. Police said a search of the person in question resulted in finding three hypodermic needles, two spoons with burned bottoms and an empty plastic bag in his coat pocket.
