Discarded toilet set afire in driveway

A discarded ceramic toilet was placed in the driveway of a home in west suburban Geneva and set on fire sometime in the early hours of Saturday, police said.

Police found burned sticks and other debris in the toilet bowl.

The resident of the home in the 100 block of Bedford Lane reported seeing a toilet put out for garbage collection the day earlier on a nearby street, and a neighbor said he saw the toilet on Bedford Lane when he drove by at 4:15 a.m. Saturday.
