Jewelry, silver taken in residential burglary in Campton Hills

CAMPTON HILLS – A Campton Hills resident who left her home for about seven hours Saturday returned to find it burglarized, according to a Campton Hills Police Department report.

Although the front door was open, police reported that evidence indicated someone entered the home in the 43W300 block of McDonald Road, Campton Hills, by breaking the rear door glass and crawling through the glass frame.

Contents in the kitchen, dining room and bedroom were disturbed. Garbage was dumped on the floor, but the trash can was missing and likely used to carry stolen property, police reported.

Two pieces of silver were reported missing as well as several items of jewelry, including wedding rings, homemade jewelry and an antique piece of jewelry.

Several red stains that appeared to be dried blood were found in the house, police reported.

The resident didn’t believe she caused the stains because she regularly cleans the home and had not cut herself in “quite a long time,” according to the report.

Police contacted all the local hospitals to determine whether their emergency room recently treated a patient for cuts to the hands, arms and legs.

The hospital told police none of their patients fit that description.
