Chicago woman charged with theft

Evanston police arrested a Chicago woman Thursday in connection with a recent theft at Howard Beauty Supply, Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The 18-year-old and another woman of about the same age each stole $60 in hair extensions at the store, 1123 Howard St., Parrott said. The arrested woman verbally threatened and showed a knife to the employee who confronted her, Parrott said. Police haven’t yet identified the other person involved, Parrott said.

The arrested woman is scheduled to appear in court May 31.

Window broken at former Evanston Recycling Center

A broken window was discovered at the former Evanston Recycling Center on Wednesday, Parrott said.

A resident told police one of the windows on the north side of the abandoned building at 2222 Oakton St. was broken, Parrott said. A rock found nearby was apparently used to break the window, he said. Parrott said the Evanston Police Department does not know when the incident occurred.
