Theft charge dismissed in Nu Crepes sign incident

ELMHURST – The theft charge against the man who took an Elmhurst business' A-frame sign and left it at City Hall has been dismissed.

The theft charge filed by the City of Elmhurst against Michael Krumrey, 46, of the 400 block of West Crockett Avenue, was dismissed and the case closed June 12 after a complaining witness did not appear in court, according to DuPage County court records.

Krumrey was charged with theft April 29 after police saw video surveillance footage of Krumrey putting a Nu Crepes sign in his car April 27.

Krumrey told Suburban Life following his arrest that he did not steal the sign, but brought it to City Hall because it is a safety hazard and against city code.

A-frame signs on York Street have been mentioned during the City Council's previous discussions about pushcart food vendors. Pamela Uslander, known as The Hot Dog Lady of Elmhurst, is the city's only pushcart vendor. She previously operated in the same place as the Nu Crepes sign before the council voted to remove her location and another from the list of approved spots for safety concerns.
