Lesson in Locking Up:
The Naperville Police Department recently caught two men in connection to multiple car burglaries that took place in northwest Naperville over the past few weeks – and they are using security video of one of their crimes as a reminder to residents to lock their cars. In the video, Isaac Springwater of Naperville and Major Gilmore III of Pasadena, Texas are seen entering an unlocked car, taking a good five minutes to check inside the vehicle for something to steal. The two 18-year-olds were arrested and are suspected in four motor vehicle burglaries as well as the attempted break-in of a home. Officials stress again that whether it’s your car or home, you need to lock it – or lose it.
NPD Takes On Lip Sync Challenge:
There’s a chance you may spot one of Naperville’s finest busting a move instead of a criminal today. The Naperville Police Department is getting in the game, recording their own version of the viral lip sync challenge that’s been sweeping the nation. Police departments across the country have been challenging each other all summer in the sync-off, and now it’s Naperville’s turn, thanks to a challenge from Princeton’s department. NCTV17 thought it was only right to lend a hand – and a few cameras to the effort…and if you want to take part as well, come out to Rotary Hill this Monday, August 13 at 6 p.m. They’re asking the public to bring along signs supporting our local officers, and to get their moment in the spotlight as well.

Men’s Illinois Golf Open:
The Men’s Illinois Golf Open wrapped up yesterday, and many Naperville area residents qualified and participated in the three-day tournament. Several high school golfers including Scott Boyajian of Metea Valley, Colin Chromey of Neuqua Valley, Carl Christiansen of Naperville North, and Tommy Dunsire of Naperville Central all played in the first two rounds before missing the cut. Former Redhawk Scott Dunsire who now golfs at Michigan State finished at +4, just three strokes away from making the cut.

Michael Troy and Michael Harmon of Naperville also qualified but missed the final cut. Vince India of Deerfield won the Illinois open with a score of 14 under par.
