Police: Teens Steal 8 Guns from Pawn Shop

Three teenagers were arrested Sept. 25 and charged with burglary, according to Bolingbrook police.

Three teenagers were arrested Tuesday, Sept. 25, after they allegedly broke the window of a pawn shop and stole eight guns. 

Bolingbrook police responded to The Trad'en Post, 295 S. Schmidt, at 3:18 a.m. Sept. 25. for a phoned-in, glass break alarm. Upon arrival, the officers found a broken window in front of the business. 

Officers saw multiple people run toward an adjacent subdivision. K-9 responded and began a search of the area, during which the officers found clothing and "other articles." 

A "short time later," three people were located hiding in yards and running in the area. After detaining the three teenagers, officers found eight guns stolen from the pawn shop. 

Brian L. Robinson, 18, of 645 Cochise Cir., Aaron J. Marshall, 18, of 462 Seneca Ln. and Antonio L. Blackman, 17, of 2910 S. Dearborn Apt. 501 in Chicago, were charged with burglary, a class 2 felony. 

The three were transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility.

Bless the cops for grabbing these ne'er do-wells. One can only imagine what they intended to do with those illicit firearms. This town is a better place without the likes of these three bumpkins.

There are probably 100's of firearms within a mile radius of the high school. Why would that bother anybody? The fact that scum like this is walking the streets...now THAT'S an issue

Unfortunately for the community, there are hundreds of more trouble making youths in Bolingbrook. Parts of this town are looking more like a ghetto each and every day. Low income and section 8 properties are spreading like a cancer; it won't be long before it takes over the good residential areas. Sell while you can still get most of your investment back! I just had someone close on my house last week, I can't wait to get out of here.

No, it bothers me that a liquor store and the pawn shop ( a legal business, selling legal items and offering loans) were entered through the windows within a few weeks time. It bothers me that the cops need to work over time to keep down the street growing crime element around here. What does proximity have to do with guns and high schools anyway?

Geographic shouldn't have anything to do with this -- Theft isTheft. The Trad'en Post has been there for many Years and long before the School was built.. Burglary is what will be on Trial in this instance and Teenaged Punks should be aware of the Consequences....
Anna Rose Redlich October 02, 2012 at 05:18 PM
why give up and sell....why not fight and not let them take over your villiage. If I could afford to live in Bolingbrook I would be there now but it is to expensive to live there. And yes there are two places in Bolingbrook that are bad...Fernwood area where they put all the cabrini green people and then down Lily Cache behind save a lot. That is what is wrong with people...and the gangs win...because they give up.

Bolingbrook was "sold out" by the old previous Mayor of the early 1970's...too much connected housing...doing special deals for his builder friends...too much Section 8...the same old stories....NOW the village needs to concentrate on the "Landlord" problem...growing and growing out of control...the town does not know what homes are resident owned and what homesteads are absent owners/Tenants living there. Code requires Rental homes to pay higher taxes...have inspections etc. Low income folks RENT. Low Income kids live with Grandma...they are on Section 8...it's a circle....the kids are commiting crimes...and it's on the rise...STOP THE LANDLORDS INVESTORS FROM BUYING HERE BOLINGBROOK AND YOU CAN STOP THE CRIME.

Actually it finally made breaking news today -- the one at the Marathon
Steve October 02, 2012 at 06:17 PM
You've given us very interesting history and constructive questions. Thanks. It makes me wonder what the village government is doing about code enforcement in those cases.
Moved here in 1968 October 02, 2012 at 06:45 PM
Thank you Steve. The village needs to take heed of the state’s mistakes and learn by example: The OBRE –Office Banks & Real Estate had only 4 inspectors statewide during the last 15 yrs. Because of this, they could not handle all the complaints and investigations with regard to predatory lending of mortgage loan brokers. Because of lack of funding and no controls in place, homes foreclosed and the housing market crashed. It’s the same situation here, the village is not putting enough money in to the Code Enforcement Division to investigate and inspect rental housing etc. That division should be triple of what it was 10 years prior and it is not. Here is the rule at the BB Web site for “At Will” reporting: “ RENTAL INSPECTIONS: All residential rental properties -- regardless of the type of housing unit, from apartments to townhouses, duplexes, or single-family homes -- must pass inspection by the Code Enforcement division prior to a new tenant moving in. Inspectors check to see that the dwelling is in compliance with all Village building codes so that occupants will be safe. Contact Code Enforcement to arrange an inspection” When a BUYER pays Tax Stamps before closing on the purchase of a new home, what rules are in place for the same person buying up cheap housing and turning them to rentals without the village knowing about it?

Not all low income people are this. I take major offense to you Vera on calling everyone section 8 scum. I am low income but I am not scum. How bout you get off your almighty shit dont stink high horse. There is crime every where, no place is crime free.
Vera volpe argentata October 02, 2012 at 09:40 PM
Amanda , Most of the section 8 dwellers are not only scum , they are crackheads, thugs, pimps and street walkers as well. Statistics will show that over 75% of Bolingbrook police calls go to the section 8 housing, yet section 8 housing is only 25% of the Bolingbrook population. Gittyup!

The village is only down to 2 code enforcement officers.Looking around you see recreational vehicles parked in driveways,inoperable vehicles,unkept lawns.These were all huge no nos years ago.

Amanda, you are right, but these boys do not want to educate themselves, do not have jobs, do not want to earn the money to buy the things they need and want. Stealing was their choice and eventually you will get caught. Teachers have been telling kids for years of the three roads of life: education, job or prison. What road will you take? These boys chose stealing = prison. Once you have a criminal record, it’s almost impossible to come back. I was there like you, young girl and poor no possibility of an education after high school. I worked hard at two jobs all through my 20’s, married in my 30’s, then had 1 child, knowing I could only educate and support 1 child. I knew that it was imperative that I have no baby in my 20’s that I could not support. Life is hard and not always fair…..no handouts…..I can tell you are smart Amanda…just work hard, learn as much as you can…take the good roads and marry a man that can demonstrate the same and you will have a rewarding life, and yes live with no crime.
amanda October 03, 2012 at 03:09 AM
Vera what if those boys lived on the rich side of town and were white, would they still be scum or just boys being boys. I am married and have a child we may struggle to get by and support our child but we get by but just because we are low income doesnt make us scum. Vera if your so upset over how bolingbrook is why dont you run for mayor.
Tom Koz October 03, 2012 at 04:05 PM
Amanda, I'm curious do you/your husband have a big screen TV? Subscription television service (Dish/Direct TV)? Cell Phones?? You/your husband enjoy a few cold beers every now and then??? I'm going to guess YES to all of the above. WHY the heck should tax payers be paying for a portion/all of your rent???
amanda October 03, 2012 at 07:25 PM
Um actually we dont take the handouts for low income, we dont have link, we arent in section 8 housing. just because we are low income people doesnt mean we take the handouts because we know there are people worse off. So before you judge know your facts first tom. You dont pay for my mortgage my husbands jobs do and my jobs pay for our cell phone and other expenses. And no we dont have dish or cable cant afford it.
Tom Koz October 03, 2012 at 07:29 PM
My apologies Amanda. I assumed from your comment above that you were taking Sect. 8. Please forgive me. It is unfortunate most folks out there aren't as honorable and self reliant as you and your husband.

Sox Fan: at first I thought it was an encrypted message. Definitely need a translator these days. Too many foreign languages these days & not enough plain old English.

To Mrs. go getta: All students are given the tools and resources needed to learn good grammar and punctuation. These skills are a must for a successful life. What you choose to do with those resources is up to you. I appreciate your loyalty and love for your brother. He will need it to turn things around and make his life better. When you visit him, take writing material, paper and a dictionary. Call ahead to make sure all of this is allowed. Bring paperback books. Even the grade school level has interesting stories and it will keep his mind occupied. The books are also a great deal at the Goodwill or you can get them at the library for free. I go to both places. There is always time to turn it around, no matter what age you are. Best wishes to you and your family.
