Aurora Crime Blotter: Attempted wardrobe overhaul unravels at Walmart
What not to wear. Officers were dispatched Sept. 29 to the Walmart at 3301 Tower Road. Employees told police they saw a man walk through the men’s clothing department, select various items and place them in a backpack. They said he attempted to leave the store without paying for items worth $143, according to police reports. Walmart staff members stopped the man, who was waiting in the store security office when officers arrived.
Damaged windows. Officers were dispatched Oct. 8 to the AT&T store at 14401 E. Bayaud Ave., Suite A. The store manager told police someone had thrown a large rock at one of the windows overnight. Two large rocks were found near the damaged window, which was cracked, according to a police report. The same window was damaged a year ago, and repairs cost $5,000-$6,000, the manager told police. The incident was not caught on security footage.
Lost phone connection. A Comcast employee was installing cable and internet service on Sept. 26 at a residence on the 1100 block of Newark Street.

Stolen license plates. Officers were dispatched Oct. 4 to a residence on the 16000 block of Wyoming Circle. A man said the license plates were stolen from his car overnight as it sat in the apartment complex parking lot, according to a police report.
