Barrington police: Car stolen from Promenade Street residence


Monday, March 11

A Hyundia collided with a school bus near the intersection of County Road at Old County Road. The driver of the car said he was behind the bus — it was not carrying any students at the time — when he thought it was pulling away. It wasn’t, and he collided with the back of the bus. No one was injured, and the bus was not damaged.

Police charged a 14-year-old Barrington boy after he allegedly pushed a fellow middle school student to the floor. The suspect also reportedly punched the other boy and twisted his nose. The victim had a swollen nose, scratches in his neck and a cut on his right ear.

A Hemlock Drive resident told police a passing snowplow had thrown dirt and rocks against her car.

A woman reportedly left her screaming four-year-old daughter inside her car while she went into the post office. Another motorist alerted police who spoke to the mother; she told officers the girl didn’t want to go in, so she left her in the car. She said the girl was alone in the car for approximately five minutes.

A Promenade Street resident’s car — a 2007 blue Subaru Impreza, was stolen. The vehicle’s owner told police she had left the keys in the car’s cupholder. Police are still trying to locate the vehicle.

A Humphreys Road resident told police someone stole two pairs of sunglasses and $25 worth of quarters from his car overnight. He was not sure if he had locked the vehicle.

Police charged Kelvin DiOrio, 19, of 105 Roffee St., with receiving stolen goods after he allegedly tried to sell a cell phone that had been stolen from a gym locker at Barrington High School. The rightful owner of the phone tracked it down through an online classified listing and later shared information with local police. Officers believe a different person — another student at the high school — initially stole the phone.
