Retail theft

Three women in their early 20s with a child about 3 to 4 years old were seen taking three containers of Enfamil baby formula from the Jewel-Osco grocery store, 438 Madison St., at 2:12 p.m. on July 24. They left the store and entered a gray Pontiac with temporary license plates.

These items, obtained from the Oak Park and River Forest police departments, came from reports, July 23 to 29, and represent a portion of the incidents to which police responded. Anyone named in these reports has only been charged with a crime and cases have not yet been adjudicated. We report the race of a suspect only when a serious crime has been committed, the suspect is still at large, and police have provided us with a detailed physical description of the suspect as they seek the public’s help in making an arrest.
