Man steals iPhone from SPAC

A man stole an iPhone from SPAC on Tuesday, police said.

Police arrived at the Sports Pavilion and Aquatics Center at around 6:19 p.m. Tuesday in reference to a theft report, University Police Deputy Chief Dan McAleer said. Upon arrival, they spoke with a student who worked at SPAC and witnessed the theft. He said he saw a man loitering in the basketball courts for 15 minutes, pretending to be interested in the games but not joining. The man picked up bags that were not his and placed them back. He then reached into an orange bag and removed the phone, placing it in his back pants pocket, McAleer said.

The staff member confronted the man, who took off running to the main lobby and continued to the North Quads. He followed and asked the front door staff to contact UP. The front desk employee said the man has been seen in SPAC on several occasions.

Police spoke to the student whose iPhone was stolen. He told police he placed his iPhone in an orange bag on the basketball court at 6 p.m. Tuesday, McAleer said. He saw an individual chasing a man for no apparent reason and noticed his bag had been disturbed and his iPhone removed.

UP is searching for a 6-foot-3 black male, in his mid-20’s, and wearing a white shirt and silver-green gym shoes.

Couple arrested for alcohol, cannabis possession

A couple was arrested Tuesday in connection with alcohol and cannabis possession, police said.

Evanston Police officers were dispatched to 101 Ashland Ave. at approximately 10:16 p.m. Tuesday for a possible assault and possession of weapon.

Upon arrival, officers made contact with two individuals inside a tan Buick, who identified themselves as boyfriend and girlfriend. Officers saw a bottle of Hennessy Cognac and 12 11-ounce bottles of Corona Beer in the rear seat of the car, EPD Cmdr. Tom Guenther said.

Officers proceeded to search for a weapon, at which point they discovered bags of what is suspected to be cannabis. Police then determined that no sexual improprieties had taken place.

Terrence Goldie Richardson, 20-year-old resident of 1215 Darrow Ave., and Marisol Eugenio, a 23-year-old resident of 1845 W. Touhy Ave. in Chicago, were arrested for possession of alcohol by a minor and possession of cannabis, respectively. Both are scheduled to appear in court June 27.
