Different view of smartphone theft
The Daily Herald on July 26 carried a Page 3 account of a smartphone theft at a location that I feel was incorrectly given. My efforts to verify the exact location of the robbery have been justifiably prohibited by the DuPage County Sheriff's classification of the case as an ongoing investigation.
In my view, the incident did not take place within the Brandywine Subdivision as indicated in the article. After talking to people with knowledge of the event, I believe it occurred, in fact, at the Oakbrook Terrace Park District Heritage Center basketball court on Ardmore Avenue.
This may seem like a minor distinction to some, but the Brandywine Association board of directors and other area locals were opposed to the park district's decision to install basketball hoops in the first place. Brandywine should not be wrongly associated with a predictably negative result of the Oakbrook Terrace Park District's ill-conceived basketball plan.
