- A van was driven through exterior and interior doors Tuesday morning at Abt Electronics in Glenview in an apparent crash-and-grab attempt, but no merchandise was taken and four offenders fled the scene, police said.
According to a news release from the Glenview Police Department, at 5:38 a.m. two vans, one full-size and one minivan, pulled into the Abt parking lot at 1200 Milwaukee Ave. There were four men in the two vans.
One man drove the full-size van into the building through an exterior and interior set of glass doors at the merchandise pickup area, according to the release.
Once the doors were breached, all the men ran into the store, where they were confronted by an employee. They then ran out and fled the scene in the minivan, according to the release.
A certain lack of planning, no reconnaissance, no apparent knowledge of on-site 24-hour security - we're betting a Chicago connection.
