SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: SOLID REASONING
After crashing her Chevrolet Sonic at the intersection of Armstrong Parkway and Douglas Avenue, a 38-year-old Dallas woman abandoned the vehicle and took off by foot. Why? She had several alcoholic drinks during pizza with friends, she told police around 9:28 p.m. While there was a “light smell of alcohol” on her, police gave her a ride home and cited her only for abandoning the car.
Arrested at 3:10 a.m.: a 21-year-old Highland Park man on suspicion of public intoxication at the intersection of Key Street and Normandy Avenue.
A minor was pulled over around 3:45 a.m. on suspicion of driving under the influence in the 5500 block of Hillcrest Avenue.
Stolen before 8 a.m.: a bottle of prescriptions medicine, valued at $275, from a 2018 white Toyota Land Cruiser parked overnight in the 4400 block of Fairfax Avenue.
A pair of white Apple wireless earbuds and various gift cards, collectively valued at $300, were stolen before 9 a.m. from an unlocked 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee parked overnight in the 4500 block of Versailles Avenue.

A homeowner in the 4500 block of Lorraine Avenue knew something was odd when she walked outside around 10 a.m. and saw the hood of her white 2016 Lincoln Mark X wide open. Inside, contents from the vehicle’s center console and glove box were strewn about the interior and a set of Apple wireless earbuds were missing.
If your last name starts with an H and ends with a T, it could be your Chase bank card and Top Golf player’s card that were found around the intersection of Arcady Avenue and Westside Drive. They were dropped off at the police department around 4:36 p.m.
Four bottles of wine, valued at $1.039.97, were stolen from Royal Blue Grocery at Highland Park Village between 4:56 and 7 p.m. Dec. 29, a store clerk reported around 2:13 p.m. Jan. 2.

There is another way to see fewer wrinkles, but stealing $700 worth of Neutrogena products from the CVS store in the 3000 block of Mockingbird Way is one we don’t suggest. According to a police report, sometime between 8:20 a.m. Jan. 1 and 12:07 p.m. the following day, the merchandise was stolen.
Sometime before 9 a.m., a 2010 red Lexus RX350, valued at $35,000, and property such as clothing and computer gear, collectively valued around $3,000, were stolen overnight while parked in the 3200 block of Milton Avenue.
