Burglar breaks car window

Someone broke into a car parked outside a south Evanston home Tuesday night, according to police.

A person watching the home reported the incident the following morning, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Police discovered a pry tool was used to shatter the front window of the car parked in the 1400 block of Brummel Street, Parrott said.

The burglar apparently ransacked the compartment in the armrest between the front seats of the car, Parrott said. However, it is unclear what was taken.

Bikes stolen from locked apartment

Two bikes were stolen from a south Evanston apartment Wednesday morning, Parrott said. 

Parrott said the burglar entered the apartment through the rear door. However, the residents, a 23-year-old man and 25-year-old woman, told police they locked the back door of their apartment in the 300 block of Kedzie Street.

The burglar took a white and orange Trek men’s bike and a Schwinn silver bicycle. The two bikes are valued at about $1,200, Parrott said.
