Arlington Heights police responded just after 4:46 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022 after a homeowner reported that a security camera (ring camera) had just captured video of a suspicious person on his property and in the backyard on Carlyle Place south of Mayfair Road. The suspect was described as male/black, age unknown, with a cell phone camera light or cell phone flashlight illuminating the backyard. The suspicious person was observed in four different backyards. Arlington Heights police responded immediately and discovered the suspicious person on a nearby street. He told the police he was looking for his cat.
Police have identified the man and no arrests have been reported.
The suspicious incident is the second nighttime suspicious incident in the neighborhood reported in the past two weeks. A person reported on the Neighbors app that a suspicious person tried to enter the house (or check the door) at 1.30am and then rang the doorbell. The video timestamped at 1:35 a.m. Thursday August 25, 2022 shows an unknown person at the door described as male/white wearing a T-shirt and dark jeans or pants, and carrying a cell phone.
Whatever the explanations for the actions of these suspicious people, the usefulness of security cameras for education and investigations, if necessary, is obvious. Residents of the Stonegate neighborhood in Arlington Heights may want to check their security camera footage, especially between around 4 a.m. and 4:50 a.m. on Thursday, September 8, 2022.
