Bike stolen from downtown Evanston

A bike valued at more than $500 was stolen from downtown Evanston on Tuesday, police said.

The bike was stolen from a bike rack in the 900 block of Davis Street sometime before 10 p.m. Tuesday, police said. The warmer spring weather is believed to have led to an increase in bike thefts in the past week, according to a community newsletter.
