Police & Fire, Schools
Mokena schools are taking extra precautions with students' safety as police search the Tinley Park area for two convicted bank robbers, who escaped from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in the Loop this morning.
A Mokena family is involved in two domestic battery incidents, just hours apart, involving a boyfriend, a daughter, a mother and an aunt. Both the boyfriend and the aunt ended their Saturday night in jail, awaiting bond hearings.
Four suspects from Mokena and Frankfort were arrested after eating at Denny's and then leaving without paying. The four were later stopped by Mokena Police and two suspects were carrying cocaine.
Traffic was stop-and-go between Interstate 57 and 80th Avenue because of an accident that blocked the right lane of westbound traffic.
