Thief steals motorcycle worth $5,700

A thief stole a motorcycle parked in downtown Evanston sometime between 7 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m. Tuesday, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The 2005 Honda motorcycle belongs to a 31-year-old Evanston man and was parked near the corner of Greenwood Street and Sherman Avenue, Parrott said.

There are no suspects at this time. The bike is worth about $5,700.

Items taken from two Volvos, other vehicles

Many items were stolen from unlocked cars parked in north Evanston on Friday, Parrott said.

Police said a 37-year-old Evanston woman’s wallet was taken from her 2011 Volvo parked in the 800 block of Milburn Street.

In addition, a 49-year-old Evanston man’s 2002 Volvo was ransacked, Parrott said. Only spare change was taken from the car parked in the 2900 block of Hartzell Street, police said.

Parrott said several additional thefts of items in unlocked cars occurred in north Evanston. These thefts might be related, he added, but due to the distances between them, it is difficult to say with certainty.
