Police solve case of missing cuckoo clock
Doris Weiske only wanted the safe return of her cuckoo clock, which she entrusted to repair man Hugo Tejero months ago. Tejero — who had handed her business cards with a Plainfield telephone number, but no address — would pick the clocks up from her home in an unincorporated area near Joliet, vowing to return in a week.
Working off a photo and his license plate, police found Tejero living in Hoffman Estates.
Weiske said police told her Tejero seemed surprised to see them, but that he still had the clock and cards with Weiske's name and phone number written on them.
