Police arrest Franklin Park man accused of scamming River Grove restaurant

The law has caught up with a man who allegedly swindled thousands of dollars from a local restaurant.

David Stachurski, 66, last known address 3246 N. Rose St., Franklin Park, was arrested by the Lyons Police Department July 4 on a theft by deception warrant out of River Grove, in connection with an incident that took place in January.

According to River Grove Police Det. Miguel Villagomez, Stachurski moved around a lot so he was hard to catch up to.

Villagomez said Stachurski had allegedly approached the owners of Zacatecas Restaurant in River Grove, claiming he could lower the business’ property taxes. The restaurant owners allegedly gave Stachurski $4,100 in cash to do the job, but Stachurski never returned after that.

“After speaking to the owners of the restaurant, we went out to look for him,” he said. “He was not at his Rose Street address and that’s when we got the warrant for his arrest.”

Villagomez said Stachurski was allegedly staying in a hotel in Lyons, and police were called to the location because he was allegedly involved in a disturbance there, which led to police discovering the warrant. He was placed under arrest at the scene.

His court date is scheduled for July 24.
