Just wondering why there is NEVER anything in the Herald News about any crime in Lockport?? Every other city has info about it... There must be some arrests or crime in Lockport, right? Seems strange.

Because they hide those things. It doesn't look good for the ever so wonderful and booming town thanks to I-355 Tollway Lockport, IL! That's why. They are spending thousands and thousands of dollars to have all these studies down, the corridor, the downtown, etc., etc., why would they want to start publishing the crimes taking place in Lockport?

There's crime all the time....

Of course it is the Paper - but they report every other cities crimes!

The reason it is not in the paper is because they only put the arrest that result in the person being transported to Will County ADF. lockport bonds out most of the arrest they make, the few they don't bond out are usually in the paper

Will County handles unincorporated areas. The Lockport Police Department handles the City of Lockport crimes. Why should we look on the Will County Sheriff's website?

When is Officer Eddie Stapinski going to get a chance to clear his name in court?

When the State's Attorney decides it's time. Anyone who knows anything about the legal process knows it doesn't move like a one hour TV show.

Really? Clear his name? He is 100% guilty of killing that young man on Interstate 55. How can anyone expect to get his name to be cleared? Unless, it's Lovelace getting people to stand up in court for me saying they saw everything and that he was in any where around there!

The crime is in Fairmont and your retail centers. So who really cares?

I check the Will County Blotter often and Lockport is well represented.
Many arrests for burglary, domestic battery, credit card fraud. DUI, you name it. Lockport is loaded with young burglars getting rearrested. There's a guy I've seen 3 times in this calendar year.
Bolingbrook-Romeoville many drug, retail arrests. When you see the offenders pinched daily it makes you appreciate the the job the police have on their hands even in Lockport.

Well, maybe if our Cops would stay out of the bars, they could be sober to fight crime the next day. My question still remains.... It's been over a year now. When will Eddie Stapinski be going to court?

It's funny that I found this in the blotter... but there was no mention of the DRIVE BY SHOOTING that occured on the same block @ 3 a.m. that same day... which was in connection to that tag.

There is no need.All police activities are taken care of with a shallow grave or chains and the Cal-Sag waterway.
