Former Chief Technology Officer at Christian Liberty Academy Arrested; Accused of Transferring $293K from School for Personal Gain

A former administrator and technology officer of Christian Liberty Academy was charged this week with allegedly engaging in a financial crimes scheme for his personal benefit, officials with the Office of Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said Wednesday.

Michael Burrei, 41, a former chief technology officer at the Christian Liberty Academy in Arlington Heights and current resident of Tennessee, was charged with the felony offenses of theft from a school or place of worship and continuing a financial crimes enterprise. The charges followed an investigation by the State's Attorney's Financial Crimes Unit and the Arlington Heights Police Department, officials said.

Burrei is alleged to have transferred more than $293,000 in school revenues for his own personal use over the course of a 15-month period, officials said.

According to prosecutors, Burrei created a PayPal account in July 2013 to enable online purchases to be made on the school's online store. The revenue generated by the site was allegedly deposited directly into the PayPal account which was managed solely by Burrei, prosecutors said. Since Burrei was the sole administrator of the account, he was capable of transferring funds to other accounts.

Investigators determined that over 100 transfers were made from the PayPal account administered by Burrei into his personal checking account between August 2013 and November 2014, according to officials.

Burrei was also incurring extensive unknown personal expenses during this time -- debiting between $10,000 and $35,000 per month from his checking account.

The school's PayPal account was closed with a zero balance by Burrei without the authority of administrators from the Christian Liberty Academy on December 29, 2014.

When school officials confronted Burrei about his closing the account, he allegedly said he was not responsible and claimed that the account had over $273,000 in it, officials said.

Christian Liberty Academy reported the suspicious financial activity to the Arlington Heights Police Department. Detectives from the Arlington Heights Police Department traveled to Tennessee and located Burrei at his residence in Nashville earlier this year. During police contact, he allegedly admitted to making the transfers to his personal account and agreed to return to Illinois to surrender to authorities, officials said.

According to the state's attorney release, Burrei appeared in court Wednesday in Rolling Meadows Cook County Circuit Court.

A Cook County judge set his bond at $100,000, with his next court date set for April 22.

EgyptAir Hijacker Surrenders at Lrnaca International Airport

A suspect, identified by Cypriot and Egyptian officials as Seif Eldin Mustafa, has surrendered after hijacking EgyptAir Flight #MS181. The suspect is an Egyptian living in Cyprus whose motive was not clear. He either wanted to his estranged wife or seek the release of female prisoners in Egypt.

He told the pilot that he was wearing a suicide belt and threatened to detonate it, but the suicide belt was later determined to be fake. The hijacker diverted the Alexandria-to-Cairo flight to Larnaca International Airport.

EgyptAir reported the Airbus A320 was carrying 56 passengers from Alexandria to Cairo, along with six crew members and a security official. A statement from Egypt's civil aviation ministry said 26 foreign passengers were on board, including eight Americans, four Britons, four Dutch citizens, two Belgians, two Greeks, a French national, an Italian and a Syrian.

Most of the people on board were released after the flight was diverted en route to Cairo from Alexandria, but the EgyptAir A320 stayed on the tarmac with the hijacker and seven or eight other people still on board. The remaining hostages were eventually freed. One male hostage escaped by jumping from a cockpit window. The hijacker surrendered a short time later.

Condo Fire on Baldwin Way Near Nichols Rd and Baldwin Rd, Palatine Kills 2 Pet Birds

Palatine police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:34 PM Friday to a report of a condominium fire at 2254 North Baldwin Way Palatine, Il. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that there was a fire in a bedroom in a condominium unit.

Police officers arriving first on the scene advised they had heavy smoke showing, and the response was upgraded to a working fire response. The first Palatine Fire Department crews arrived on the scene at 11:40 p.m. and reported heavy smoke showing from the front of the two story, 8 unit condominium building.

During their size up, the first fire company found fire venting from the window of a first-floor unit. Firefighters pulled a hose line to the rear of the building and began an exterior attack on the fire while other firefighters pulled a second hose line through the main entrance of the building into the fire unit to begin an aggressive interior attack. Firefighters performed a thorough search of the building to ensure that there were no trapped occupants.

Firefighters removed drywall from the ceiling and some walls of the unit to search for hidden fire, while other fire crews established a water supply, raised ladders, pulled a backup hose line and provided for emergency medical standby. Due to the building size and potential for fire spread, the Incident Commander requested additional units to the scene of the incident. The remaining fire in the unit was declared under control at 11:54 p.m.

Firefighters remained on the scene for some time after that, ventilating smoke and fire gases from the entire building. The fire caused significant damage to the unit of origin, leaving it temporarily uninhabitable. No civilians or firefighters were injured in the fire, although two pet birds perished from the smoke. Damage estimates are not immediately available.

Palatine Fire Department investigators were on the scene and determined the cause of the fire to be accidental in nature. The fire was fought by 30 firefighters manning four engines, three ladder trucks, one rescue squad, and four ambulances along with three command officers. An ambulance and engine crew from the Arlington Heights Fire Department responded as part of an automatic mutual aid agreement, and an ambulance from the Long Grove Fire District and a ladder truck from the Buffalo Grove Fire Department responded as part of the upgraded assignment.

Palatine Police officers assisted at the scene with security, traffic and crowd control.

The Palatine Fire Department reminds residents to have working smoke detectors on each level of your home and each bedroom. When you hear a fire alarm activate, make sure you evacuate. Have, and practice, an escape plan and be prepared to use it if you discover a fire in your home.

Arlington Heights Residents: Register to Have Smoke Detectors Checked Saturday, April 2

On Saturday, April 2, Arlington Heights residents can have new batteries placed in their home smoke detectors at no cost and faulty detectors replaced through "The Katie Project," a community initiative that started three years ago following a devastating fire that killed three women inside a home on Dunton Avenue where there was an inoperable smoke detector.

The goal of "The Katie Project" is to make fire safety easy and to help ensure that more homes in Arlington Heights have working smoke detectors. This initiative is named after Village Trustee Joe Farwell's cousin who died in a home fire in the 1970s before it was commonplace to have smoke detectors in homes.

If you are interested in having your smoke detectors checked and replaced by volunteer teams with "The Katie Project" on Saturday, April 2 between 9 a.m. and Noon, please register by emailing your name, address and phone number to dstaggs@vah.com or call the Village Manager's Office at 847-368-5100. Also, please email us if you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Katie Project.

This program benefits residents who do not have the opportunity or ability to check whether their smoke detectors need new batteries. Any Arlington Heights resident, whether living in a home, apartment or condo is eligible to participate in "The Katie Project." The free program will continue until all donated batteries and smoke detectors are used.

Residents are encouraged to check their smoke detectors on a regular basis and to purchase new detectors every 10 years.

Arlington Heights Police K-9 Receives Donation for Bulletproof Vest from Animal Feeds and Needs, Fromm Family Pet Food

Arlington Heights Police Department K9 unit received a monetary donation to acquire a special canine bulletproof vest.

Yara, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois, joined the Police Department in September 2015. Officer Jeff Tegtmeyer and Yara trained together at Vohne Liche in Denver, Indiana for five weeks creating a strong working partnership. Together, they patrol the community supporting a law enforcement and public relations mission.

Like police officers, K9 partners are equally susceptible to violence by the criminal element. In fact, a police working dog Web page details over 90 canines killed in the line of duty from gun or sharp force traumatic injury in the past 10-years (www.cpwda.com). Several bulletproof vest manufacturers recognized this threat and also produce a ballistic garment for police dogs.

Two companies teamed up to purchase a safety vest for K9 Yara. Animal Feeds and Needs, an Arlington Heights pet supply retailer, joined with dog food manufacturer Fromm Family Pet Food of Mequon, Wisconsin to fund this offer.

The Police Department ordered a custom fit vest that should be delivered in six weeks. The entire cost ($800) was covered by their generous donation.

Officer Tegtmeyer and Yara are pictured below with Animal Feeds and Needs owner Chuck Hume. Mr. Hume presented a check to Off. Tegtmeyer on behalf of the charitable venture. The Police Department greatly appreciates this act of community support.

This morning's Chicago 2016 Shamrock Beer Run in downtown Arlington Heights was a success. The run began a little late after the scheduled 11:00 a.m. start time, but that didn't break any enthusiasm for the participants.

The race began just west of Vail Avenue and Campbell Street (217 W. Campbell Street), and proceeded in streets south of downtown Arlington Heights to as far south as Orchard Street

The fun run involved a post-run get together at the finish line on Highland Avenue, just south of Campbell Street. The sights to see included green face paint, green wigs, green dyed hair, big hats, orange beards, and a lot of bright green clothing.

The event served alcohol, so local laws and ordinances applied, and participation was limited to those who are 21 years of age or older. A valid proof of age ID was required to receive a wrist band that signifies an approved participant. The crowd was friendly, and it appeared there were no problems on the route.

A large crowd of over 1800 participants ran and walked the route. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the Animal House Shelter, Protected Tomorrow Charities, Salute Inc. and Shelter Inc. A small amount of proceeds also went to free beer for the participants.

Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:47 PM Thursday to a report of a child in distress and possibly choking in a vehicle near the intersection of HIggins Road and Martingale Road Schaumburg, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report of a possible complete obstruction of a child's airway. At approximately 8:50 P.M., Schaumburg Police Officers Bryan Poradzisz and Kevin O'Connor arrived at the location near Higgins Road and IL Route 53. The child, a 19-month old girl, was in the car with her grandmother heading home to Chicago after spending the afternoon in Schaumburg. The child appeared to stop breathing, so her grandmother pulled the vehicle to the side of the road.

The child's grandmother took the girl out of her car seat and called 9-1-1 when she was unable to help the girl begin breathing again. Ofc. Poradzisz arrived moments later and found the child unresponsive, not breathing, and her lips were blue. Ofc. Poradzisz immediately rendered aid by administering the Heimlich maneuver, followed by CPR. Ofc. O'Connor, who arrived just after Ofc. Poradzisz, performed a finger sweep of the child's mouth and cleared vomit and mucous
that Ofc. Poradzisz was able to dislodge from the child's airway. Almost immediately, the child began breathing on her own again and regained consciousness. Ofc. Poradzisz and Ofc. O'Connor comforted the child until paramedics arrived and took over medical treatment. The young patient was transported to a local hospital.

At this time it is unknown what caused the child to aspirate, but we have learned that she appears to have made a full recovery.

Schaumburg police praised the officers and reported the incident highlights the dedication, talent, and focused calm under pressure displayed by the fine men and women in law enforcement each and every day. The Schaumburg Police Department commends Officer Poradzisz and Officer O'Connor for their outstanding work.
