Trespasser Returns AgainAndrew D. O'Donnell, 19, of the 3600 block of Creekwood Court, Downers Grove, was charged with criminal trespass to land. O'Donnell was arrested at 1:30 p.m. after walking into a store on the 1100 block of Ogden Avenue knowing that he was no longer allowed in the business, a police report said. A store manager said O'Donnell continues to return despite being told he isn't allowed on the property. O'Donnell was served with a trespass notification.
O'Donnell would return to the store again the next day at 4:30 p.m. When officers arrived, they found him in the parking lot of a nearby business. He told police he was arrested the day before.
"I detected a strong odor of alcohol emanating from O'Donnell, and that he had bloodshot and glassy eyes," a police report said. "O'Donnell stated that he had been drinking that day. O'Donnell stated that he had a 'couple of shots.'"
O'Donnell blew a .228 BrAC at 5:35 p.m., the report said. He was charged with criminal trespass and consumption of alcohol by a minor. He was released on I-bond with a Sept. 18 court date in Wheaton.

Stolen PinscherA $2,000 miniature Pinscher named Lana was reported stolen from a second-floor apartment balcony on the 2300 block of Ogden Avenue. The incident occurred sometime between 5 p.m. Aug. 14 and 9:30 p.m. Aug. 15, according to a police report. The owner purchased the dog a year-and-a-half ago and it is micro-chipped.
Since the owner lives on the second floor, she would leave her balcony sliding door open a small amount so Lana could urinate outside. The owner was gone for a day and when she returned, she noticed Lana was missing. There was no sign of forced entry, nothing else was missing and there were no suspect leads, the report said.
