Its been 249 days and the community is still wondering what happened to Sgt Ronald Susek? Is our town still safe? Will the Melrose Park Police Department catch the killer? Or will some patsy be charged to save face? What a totally dysfunctional police department.
1. A Deputy Chief that's main concern is whos going to breakfast with him in the morning
2. A computer system that is still not functioning up to its capabilities because the IT person is friends with Castellan.
3. Affiliated police officers with an organized crime motorcycle gang. The Reapers Inc
4. A sergeant who makes his own hours and has a take home car and does no police work all because he lives next door to the chief. Sgt Rinella and now rumors are that he getting a promotion too.
5. A Deputy Chief that sell stolen radios to the PD for an inflated price.
6. A Deputy Chief that forces officers to sell and muscle ads for his Italian club while on duty. Lt Grenco Lichter Treffens and Lorenzo.

How can anyone expect these clowns to solve any crimes at all?

WOW!! Are you ok? Why don't you sit down before you pop something.
Once again...Anything to do with my family is public knowledge. I do not hide it and I support my family 100%.
What happened with my brother, happened in the early 1990's and I started Duke's in 2009 (at least 13 years after your article there). My brother served his time, paid his debt and the matter is closed. If it were a current and relevant story then I guess I would have to report it. But since it is not, there is no reason to keep bringing up melted snowballs to throw around.
Thank you for the link to the old story but I have all the original articles in a folder in a box.
I have no axe to grind with Melrose Park. I post and write stories about many places and issues. I am from Melrose Park. I just happen to think that the officers catch a raw deal due to the culture they are trained in. I think the police department needs to change at the top and someone needs to go in and give the officers a chance at a new start and to allow them to be the police officers that they can be.
I applaud your attempt to entice me into a childish Topix fight.

By the time anyone realized Louie Filskov had been stealing from his employer, more than $900,000 was missing.

That's because the Lombard man "stole like it was his job," prosecutors said in court Thursday.

DuPage County Judge Robert Kleeman sentenced Filskov, 39, to eight years in prison for the "staggering" thefts from A Better Crawlspace in Bensenville, and ordered him to pay $830,000 in restitution.

"It just appears to be pure and simple greed," said Kleeman, who found Filskov guilty in May.

Assistant State's Attorney William Wu said Filskov took more than $1,000 a day, on average, while acting as the firm's general manager from March 2006 to March 2008.

He said Filskov cashed company checks at a currency exchange and spent the money on basic living expenses and bills, funneling about $300,000 through his wife's bank account. At times, Filskov claimed he'd won the lottery, authorities said.

"The defendant stole like it was his job," Wu said. "He did it every day, rain or shine and it added up."

Wu said the thefts were came to light when the firm tried to collect payment from several customers who had already paid. A subsequent investigation showed Filskov also set up unauthorized credit cards and cellphones in the company name, according to testimony.

Filskov, who had no prior criminal history, apologized repeatedly before he was sentenced Thursday.

"I'm very sorry for my part in this," he told the judge. "My words can't do it justice."

Filskov's older brother, Nick Filskov of Bloomingdale, also was caught in the scheme and pleaded guilty in 2009 to stealing $97,000 from the same company.

According to court records, he received a six-month jail term, two years of probation, and also was ordered to pay restitution.

By law, Louie Filskov must serve at least four years in prison. Both brothers also are now being sued by A Better Crawlspace.

You may need to be more specific as to what you need to get assistance
