Police Blotter: Skokie woman charged with trespassing in newly constructed home

The following arrests were listed among the official reports of the Wilmette and Kenilworth Police Departments. Readers are reminded that an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination. Court appearances take place in Cook County 2nd District Circuit Court, Skokie, unless indicated otherwise.

Wilmette

BATTERY

Michael E. Benbenek, 21, of 914 E. Old Willow Road in Prospect Heights, is scheduled to appear Aug. 4 in Cook County Court on a charge of domestic battery, stemming from a July 19 incident at Gillson Park Beach. Police arrested Benbenek shortly after 7 p.m.

Police issued a local ordinance ticket for marijuana possession to Matthew Marinaro, 21, of 1701 N. 18th Ave. in Melrose Park, after finding him July 19 in an automobile parked behind the Carson Pirie Scott department store at Edens Plaza, 3200 Lake Ave. The citation was for possessing fewer than 10 grams of marijuana, and the vehicle was impounded for 12 hours. The initial report didn’t indicate a court date.

THEFT
