‘Monster’ breaks in, takes bank card
Police arrested a 41-year-old woman accused of breaking into her neighbor’s Glen Ryan subdivision home and stealing her bank card.
Izzie McNeil, of 4225 E. 5th Place, is charged with burglary, residential entry, fraud and theft. She is being held on $40,000 bail.
Patrolman Raymond Robinson arrested McNeil early Wednesday at her home after he and the victim viewed video surveillance at a gas station that shows McNeil withdrawing money from an ATM there.
The victim told Sgt. Freddie Cook someone broke into her home through her son’s window. Her 2-year-old son told her “a monster came through the window and the monster told him to go back to sleep.”
McNeil admitted taking the bank card to buy drugs.
Alarm halts teens during burglary
The sound of a burglary alarm stopped four teens as they broke into a house in the Mann area Oct. 1.
Police arrived after learning of the alarm in the 2300 block of Wabash Avenue and saw four teens in the alley. The four were arrested after the resident discovered bars had been removed from her window and a screen was kicked in.
A shoe print left outside the window matched shoes worn by Kurtis L. Tolliver, 18, of 4401 Washington St., who is charged with burglary and residential entry, court records state.
Tolliver told Detective Richard McClelland he and three younger teens saw the house and “thought it looked like a good house to break into,” but when the alarm sounded, they did not enter.
