More than $200 worth of items stolen from two cars

Someone stole more than $200 worth of items from a woman’s two cars Monday in central Evanston , Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

Parrott said the 34-year-old woman’s 2006 Toyota Prius and 2011 Toyota Highlander were parked in the 900 block of Crain Street when someone broke into them. The thief took several items, including a pair of sunglasses, a leatherman set, a GPS and $2 in change, Parrott said.

There was no forced entry or damage to either vehicle, and it was not clear if the cars were unlocked, Parrott said.
