'The Hell Storm Has Just Begun'
A 24-year-old man told police that his 40-year-old girlfriend slashed all four of his tires on his 1986 Olds Cutlass sometime between 4 and 9:15 a.m. The boyfriend’s car was parked in a lot on the 9300 block of South Harlem Ave. Police said there were taunting text messages to him from his girlfriend that said, “Have fun walking to work,” and “the hell storm has just begun.” As police were talking to the boyfriend, the girlfriend drove by in her car. Police checked the area with negative results. The boyfriend said she would not return back to the scene, and told the cops “to go ahead and press charges.”

Burglars Swim, Rob Buildings
An employee at the Lawn Aqua Swimming Club at 4500 W. 111th St. reported that someone has been sneaking in to swim at night and rob buildings. Police found an area in the barbed wire fence that had been intentionally pulled down and wrapped under a support bar to make it easier to climb over around 10:21 a.m. The employee believes that some entered the lifeguard building during the overnight hours of July 24 and removed a foam tube. Police said $300 was missing from the office and snack bar, as well as $130 in change.
