Early in the evening of Wednesday, June 13, the Independent learned that the Elmhurst Police Department was in the midst of a search for man who is a suspect in a retail theft. The suspect escaped police custody in the vicinity of North Ave. and Larch.

He was described as a 38-year-old Hispanic male about 5’8” and 180 lbs., wearing red pants and a yellow T-shirt. Police said he may have still been handcuffed.

At about 10:53 p.m., police announced it had discontinued the search because it was believed the suspect was no longer in the area.
