Blotter: Personal items stolen from apartment

A trove of personal items were stolen Thursday afternoon from an apartment in the 700 block of Hercules Drive, according to police.

Police arrived on the scene to discover the door had been unlocked during the burglary, and the suspects did not have to force their way inside, the report said.

Police also couldn’t lift fingerprints from the area because the victim, a man whom police did not identify, manipulated the door handle and touched numerous surfaces in the apartment, the report said.

Two Chicago Bulls baseball caps, a shoebox with about $150 in it, an “alleged” BB gun, a Samsung TV and a black rifle in a case were taken from the apartment, according to the report.
