Police Blotter: Teens Caught on Video Damaging School Bus

Mokena police reports, Feb 25-29


Drug Arrests

Police said two women were arrested on drug-related charges after an officer approached their car in the 11100 block of McGovney Street around 11 p.m. and smelled marijuana. Two bags of marijuana weighing a combined 2.8 grams along with a hitter pipe were confiscated from the car, police said.

The car’s owner, Amanda M. McCrary, 22, of the 700 block of Lexington Court in New Lenox, was charged with possession of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A passenger, Heather M. Jungman, 24, of the 27100 block of Route 45 in Manhattan, was charged with possession of cannabis.


Municipal Obstruction

Kyle G. Bewley, 22, of the 12200 block of Josephine Drive in Mokena was charged with interference with a village officer. Police said they responded to a domestic dispute in the 9000 block of Adare Avenue around 6 p.m. and met Bewley in the street. He refused to leave and was argumentative.


D159 Bus Damaged

Police said surveillance footage captured in the 11200 block of Willowcrest Lane on Feb. 25, around 1 a.m., shows three teens damaging a Mokena School District 159 bus. One boy and two girls can be seen arriving in a red-colored car—possibly an older model Toyota or Hyundai—and prying open the vehicle's front door, police said. The rear emergency door had also been “tampered with,” according to the report, causing an estimated $600 in damage.


Car Fire

A black Chevy Blazer parked in the 19900 block of Scarth Lane between Feb. 16 and 25 was partially burned. The owner told police that the car does not work and had been sitting in his parents’ driveway. Police noted “extensive burn damage” and residue from thick smoke in the interior of the SUV.

Re: 159 bus damage - I hope this video is made available to see if public and/or school officials can identify this individuals and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. What are the parents doing having these kids run the streets at 1a.m.????
