Statue Broken at DG Art Festival
Police found a $2,750 statue broken after it was knocked off a pedestal during the Downers Grove Art Festival. The statue was in an open area near a booth on the 5100 block of Main Street, according to a police report.
An Arts Festival security employee came up to police and said the statue was not broken when he passed by about 15 minutes before at 1:58 a.m. And five minutes before that the employee said he saw a man on foot in the area that he thought was suspicious because he kept looking back, the report said.
The man was described as white, 40 years old, wearing blue jean shorts and a white t-shirt with colored sleeves. Police also saw a man matching that description walking southbound on the other side of the street about five minutes before finding the broken statue. A search shortly afterward did not turn up the man.

Found Wallet Missing $320
Police received a missing brown wallet from someone who asked that it be returned to the owner. An officer made contact with the owner and asked how he lost it. The owner remembers having the wallet between 11:30 a.m. and noon when he went to a gas station at 63rd Street and Janes in Woodridge. He then went to the Illinois Secretary of State office in Naperville and noticed his wallet was missing. He wasn't sure if he left the wallet on his truck where it might have fallen off near his home, or if it fell out of his pocket at the gas station.
The owner checked the wallet's contents, which was all there except for $320, according to a police report.
