MENDOTA — Residents of Mendota still were celebrating the New Year when a reverse call from the Mendota Police Department alerted them to a completely different spree during the early morning hours of Dec. 31.

The call placed just after noon Tuesday stated a white 2012 Mitsubishi Outback, license plate number R 329 889 was stolen from the 800 block of Chicago Street.
The call said numerous other thefts from vehicles also were reported in the area at the same time. Anyone with any information on the thefts is asked to call the police department at (815) 539-9331.

People listening to the scanner reported up to 11 separate break-ins on that street as well as the adjacent area of Main Street.

Additional information from the police department was unavailable this morning.
