Burglar breaks into Supercuts in Evanston

A burglar broke into Supercuts late Friday night in south Evanston, Evanston Police said.

A neighboring employee observed that the front door of the barbershop in the 600 block of Chicago Avenue was smashed and called the police, EPD Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Officers believe someone forced a way into the store by creating a hole in the front door.

Parrott said the cash register drawer was open but does not know what was taken.

EPD has boarded up the shop door while officers search for the business owner, Parrott said.

19-year-old arrested in connection with marijuana possession

Evanston Police arrested a 19-year-old resident Saturday afternoon in connection with marijuana possession about a mile west of Northwestern’s campus.

Officers were conducting a traffic stop for an unrelated incident when they smelled marijuana coming from the man’s vehicle in the 1500 block of Simpson Street, Parrott said. After searching the man, officers discovered a pipe they believed he used for smoking marijuana.

The man was charged with two counts of drug and paraphernalia possession. He is scheduled to appear in court April 24.
