During the early morning hours Nov. 16, Geneva Police officers responded to reports of criminal defacement of property at five Geneva buildings.
 
Police were notified at 6:50 a.m. that yellow paint had been sprayed on the windows of State Street Diner, 630 W. State St. Throughout the morning, four additional buildings were discovered defaced in the same manner, including: 

  • Geneva High School, 416 McKinley Ave.;
  • Geneva Public Library District, 227 S. Seventh St.;
  • Geneva City Hall Building Division entrance, 109 James St.; and
  • City of Geneva Finance Department, 15 S. First St. 

Similar vandalism also was found in St. Charles on Nov. 16. St. Charles Police were able to develop a suspect, who is known to law enforcement agencies in the area. The man was potentially using this outlet as a cry for help. Kane County Sheriff’s Office deputies located the man early Nov. 17, and he is currently receiving medical assistance.

These crimes remain under investigation. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Geneva Police Department’s Investigations Division at 630-232-4736.

The public is encouraged to call 911 to report all suspicious activity to the Geneva Police Department. The information provided may be the key to solving a crime in their neighborhood.
