The following incidents were listed among the official reports of the Vernon Hills police department. Readers are reminded an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.

Ashanti T. Anderson, 18, of 1508 N. Monticello Ave., Chicago, and a 17-year-old girl were charged Aug. 8 with possession of altered credit carts and unlawful use of credit cards. The two reportedly used re-encoded credit cards to make purchases at Sports Authority, 155 E. Townline Road.


A 13-year-old male was charged Aug. 6 with burglary from a motor vehicle after police said he admitted to looking in cars and pulling door handles in hopes of gaining entry.
