Out-of-state car stolen

A car from Colorado was stolen between Saturday and Monday in south Evanston, according to police.

Between 1:30 p.m. Saturday and 9:15 a.m. Monday, a 22-year-old woman noticed the vehicle was missing from where she parked it in the 500 block of Michigan Avenue, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The woman lives nearby, but the car’s owner is from Colorado.

Police described the car as a 2008 gray Subaru Legacy.

Parrott said the woman’s relationship with the owner is unclear.

Converter taken off car

A converter was stolen off of a car over the weekend, according to police.

Parrott said the converter was taken overnight off a 2006 Honda Accord owned by a 38-year-old man from Evanston. The theft occurred between 1:30 p.m. Saturday and 9:15 a.m. Sunday in the 700 block of Ridge Avenue, according to police.

Parrott said converter thefts are not uncommon.

“It’s a popular item due to the high value of the metal inside the converter,” he said.

Converters often contain precious metals such as platinum and gold.
