Downers Grove police look to rejoin owners with lost or stolen property
DOWNERS GROVE – Wilbur the toy horse currently lives in the Downers Grove Police Department evidence room with its companion, a plastic doll, and about 25 stolen or missing bikes.
Police found the plush-covered mechanical toy horse, later named Wilbur, and the doll in the Washington Park fountain on July 31, Downers Grove Police Public Education Manager Marion Heintz said. The items were probably snatched from a resident’s yard, like many bikes, and then discarded later.
“An officer was driving by and noticed something that looked weird in the water,” she said. “He went and investigated and found this doll was with it as well.”
