Police Reports: 2017-11-03

Two students reported they believed someone was inside their home at 11:27 p.m. Oct. 26 at the 1800 block of West Ayres Avenue.

Bradley University Police Department (BUPD) dispatched officers to the students residence after they made the report. They told officers that they believed they heard someone walking upstairs, and the students exited through a bedroom window on the first floor after hearing the noises.

Police inspected the outside of the residence, and all exterior doors and windows did not indicate someone broke into the house. Then they used a key to enter the home and searched the house.

Officers did not find any evidence of a person being in their home.


Officers were dispatched to the Campustown CVS when two juvenile females were reported stealing from the store at 10:33 a.m. Oct. 29.

The officers were given descriptions of the juveniles and saw them at the intersection of Main Street and Bourland Avenue.

Police then stopped the juveniles and took them into custody. It was discovered that they stole numerous items from CVS, which were confiscated from them.

The two were given juvenile referrals and were released to their guardians.


A female student reported a male nonstudent looking into the window of her residence at 10 p.m. Oct. 30 at the 1000 block of North Farmington Road.

The student was pulling into her driveway when she noticed the male looking into her window. Once the male noticed the student was in the driveway, he immediately left and walked around the corner of the house.

The female then reported the male to officers, who came to her residence to search the area.

No suspect was found.


A student discharged a fire extinguisher on the first floor of a residence at 1:26 a.m. Oct. 28 at the 1500 block of West Bradley Avenue.

The officers were dispatched to the house after the fire extinguisher was discharged, and residents in the house said they were unaware of what caused the extinguisher to go off. The Peoria Fire Department told the residents they would not be able to stay in the house until the residue was cleaned up and the damaged smoke detector heads were replaced.

The next day, the officer received information of who discharged the fire extinguisher, and they questioned the student.

The student confessed and said the incident resulted from messing around.

Repercussions are being handled through the university.
