Police Search For and Arrest 3 Men After Home Burglary

Several schools were placed on lockdown as police searched for three suspects involved with a residential burglary in Evergreen Park Thursday afternoon.

Police made quick work in their search for three burglary suspects Thursday afternoon. 

On the afternoon of Sept. 13 three men burglarized a home on the 9100 block of Avers in Evergreen Park, said Lt. Peter Donovan. 

A neighbor noticed the crime and quickly called police. A search then began for the suspects, Donovan said. 

Dogs were brought in and a helicopter was used to in hopes of locating the men. They were all found within a few blocks of the home, Donovan said. 

As is customary in a manhunt, area schools were notified of the situation and several schools, including and Most Holy Redeemer, decided to go on lock down for a short period of time. 

The three men are currently being processed at the . Information on the men charged will be made available tomorrow.

A big thank you to the Evergreen Park Police Dept and thanks for the story, Dan. Do you plan on covering any of the town meetings? Renita would post the agenda prior to the meetings so that residents knew what was being discussed and could attend them if they wished. I know you are new to EP Patch but I know that our community would appreciate more information on that type of stuff. EP Patch has 1/10th of the stories it used to- has anything changed besides Renita leaving? Any new businesses in the area that we could support? Any new developments? Anything???

and one more question- how are the political ads selected for the Patch?

Susie, you can click on the link above to email the author. I don't think it appropriate to ask these questions publicly on an unrelated article.

Hi Susie, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We can absolutely start posting agendas again. In terms of the number of stories decreasing I don't think that is entirely true. We have been covering the possible teachers strike every day for more than a week. The number of articles published each day has not decreased. However, we are more than happy to hear any ideas for stories or suggestions on what topics readers would like to see more of. Everyone is free to send those to evergreenpark@patch.com Any candidate can purchase political ads, they are not selected. Some national candidates buy ads, as do local ones. All ad sales are handled by our advertising manager and do not involve the editors or reporters. Thanks for reading!

Great! Thanks for the information and keep up the good work, Dan! And TM, thanks for the input but why don't you follow your own advice? You commented about quality of Patch under the teachers strike article. I'm sure others didn't think it was appropriate.

Nate, the police had a description of burglars provided by the informant. The police had everything under control in a few minutes and knew just about where the men were hiding. Joan

Too bad they didnt point a gun at responding officers and give them an excuse to plant this garbage in St. Mary's.
