Prospect Heights residents should be aware that a significant number of wrought iron gates have recently been stolen. On Prospect Place alone, between Vanderbilt and Underhill, five gates have recently been stolen from homes and apartment buildings. It appears the thieves perform their nefarious deeds at night using a truck. Victims are urged to call 311 file a police report to increase police vigilance and to possibly retrieve their stolen gate. Property owners may wish to hire a metal working company to weld a projection over their gate's hinge flange to prevent their gate from being stolen.
