The Antioch Police Department would like to notify our community of recent scam alerts. There are several types of scams out there, one of which is called the “Grandparents Scam”. The call was from someone claiming to be a family member (a grandchild) and said they were in jail. They needed cash quick so they can be bailed out. If you receive a call or email like this odds are it is a scammer trying to steal your money. https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-2018/grandparent-scam-scenarios.html Also, residents need to be aware of builders scams. Any builder who requires you to place a large down payment down on any work to be done, is likely a scam artist. Most reputable builders will have the start up equity to begin almost all jobs. So what can you do to protect yourself from this and other scams? You can start by never giving anyone your personal identifying information, including name, date of birth, social security number, bank account, credit card info, etc.… Also, don’t ever wire/give money to anyone without knowing for sure who you are dealing with. The scammers are very convincing and will make you believe you are dealing with a family member. Ask the caller questions that only that family member would know. Make calls to other family members or your local police to help if you receive a call or email of this type. Scams are very common and thousands of dollars are lost to these thieves. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it isn't. Please share with family and friends.

Press Release Date: October 1, 2018 Issued by: Geoff Guttschow, Deputy Chief of Police Antioch, IL- On Sunday afternoon Antioch Police arrested Antioch resident Brandon J. Perez, at his residence, following an incident that took place at the Antioch Wal-Mart around 630pm Saturday evening. Shortly after 630pm on Saturday evening, Antioch Police responded to Wal-Mart for a report of a battery that was sexual in nature. The victim, a 34 year old female, reported she was shopping with her two young children when a man approached her in the Halloween section of the store, where he made comments about her appearance. A short time later, the man approached her from behind where he grabbed her genital region over her clothing while making making sexually suggestive statements towards her. The victim slapped the man’s arm and screamed with him walking away from her. The victim was able to capture photographs of the man with her cellphone before he was able to exit the store. Within twelve hours of the incident, police received a tip from an area resident who recognized the photograph of the man on social media. The man was subsequently identified as Brandon Perez, who was taken into custody around 1:00pm Sunday.

PRESS RELEASE Arrest made stemming from 4th of July Discharge of a Firearm Released on: August 15, 2018 Contact: Geoff Guttschow, Deputy Chief of Police gguttschow@antioch.il.gov Antioch, IL- On Friday, August 10th, 24 year old Bradley E. Gundlach (100 block of Depot Street, Antioch) was taken into custody on a warrant obtained by the Antioch Police Department, for recklessly discharging a firearm the evening of the 4th of July. On 07/04/18, around 10:30pm Antioch Police responded to a residence in the 800 block of Anita Avenue for the report of several shots being discharged from a firearm. It was reported to officers that the caller and a friend confronted his neighbors about carelessly setting off fireworks in the area. This interaction led to a heated argument, where it is alleged Gundlach retrieved a firearm from the residence and discharged it into the air several times in an attempt to intimidate the caller and his friend. Following a lengthy investigation into the matter, Antioch Police Detectives obtained a $250,000 arrest warrant for Gundlach on 08/06/18 for Reckless Discharge of a Firearm, a Class 4 Felony. Gundlach turned himself in at the Lake County Jail on 08/10/18, where he later posted bond and was released pending his next court appearance on 08/30/18. “This case was a very complex and challenging case to put together in order to bring charges against the responsible individual. It was because of the hard work, dedication and attention to details by the responding Officers the night of the incident, that Detectives were able to bring this case to the successful resolution of an arrest.” – Deputy Chief Guttschow Everyone charged with a criminal offense shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law
