iPad stolen from Sam’s Club

Sam’s Club, 2450 Main St., reported that an Apple iPad was stolen by an unknown woman on Thursday.

The members-only retail store reported to the police that an unknown woman entered the store and removed an iPad from the display even though the tablet was secured to the display by cables. The woman was reported to have hidden the item under her sweatshirt, Evanston Police spokesman Perry Polinski said.

TV, laptop and jewelry stolen from Evanston residence

A residential burglary occurred Tuesday in the 1700 block of Grey Avenue.

EPD received a report that three suspicious men were seen walking down the alley carrying a TV set near Grey Avenue and proceeded to the scene, but could not locate them. However, officers did discover that a single residence on Grey Avenue had been burglarized.

Entry was gained to the residence through an unlocked window, and laptops, TV sets and jewelry were stolen. EPD did not locate the suspects, but while searching in the area where they were last seen, they uncovered several pieces of the stolen jewelry, Polinski said.
