Park Forest, IL—(ENEWSPF)— Editor’s Note: We continue our reporting on news from police reports. Besides covering the many stories from around Park Forest that otherwise might go unnoticed, we want to bring more complete coverage of police reports than is reported by other local media.

An arrest does not mean that a person is guilty. All those arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is the policy of eNews Park Forest to not remove items in the public record from publication. If your name is listed in the police reports, we will only add information relevant to the final disposition of the case at hand, e.g. "Mr. Smith was subsequently acquitted," or "All charges against Mr. Smith were subsequently dropped." We will do so upon receiving and verifying proof of such disposition.

We will always include some introductory comments before the first item. While everything that follows is a matter of public record, we do not believe it is necessary to have names on page one. 

Chicago Dough Delivery Driver Given Counterfeit $100 Bill

Police were dispatched to Chicago Dough Pizza, 3767 Sauk Trail, Richton Park, on December 28 to investigate a report of fraud. The manager reported that at approximately 11:20 p.m., an unknown suspect called and placed a delivery order of two pizzas and soda, for a total order amount of $40.63. The suspect gave the delivery person a telephone number and an address in Sauk Court, Park Forest. The driver was advised to call the number when he was close to the given address.

The driver called the number as he approached the address, and said before he could pull into the driveway, two black, male subjects approached his vehicle from the driveway of the address. The delivery person did not see either subject exit the residence, and one of the subjects approached his vehicle and asked him if he could make change for a $100 bill. The driver took the hundred dollar bill from the subject, and gave him back $59.37 in change along with the pizza and soda. It was only after he returned to the restaurant that he checked the hundred dollar bill and realized that it was counterfeit. Police have suspect information.
