The Village of La Grange Police Department would like to provide local businesses with the following “scam alert”.
It has been recently reported that a male person has entered several local businesses claiming that an employee had spilled something or soiled his clothing which then needed to be professionally dry cleaned.

The offender is a white male, between the ages of 28 and 35 years, with short dark hair. He is about 6 feet tall with a thin build. He is very persuasive in his speech and manners.
If you encounter this person please notify the La Grange Police immediately by calling 9-1-1. If you have additional information, call the non-emergency phone number (708) 579-2333 and ask to speak to an Investigative Officer.
