Three young men were arrested on Saturday in connection with a series of car burglaries that occurred in northwest Evanston.

At least six vehicles of various brands were broken into overnight Thursday, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The incidents occurred in several blocks, including the 2700 block of Marcy Avenue, the 2700 block of Lawndale Avenue and the 2700 and 3000 blocks of Thayer Street, police said.

The items stolen included cash, an iPod, a Garmin GPS and two sets of golf clubs, police said. The cars that were targeted comprised of two Hondas, an Audi, a Jeep, a Subaru and a Dodge.

Police arrested the Evanston residents, Noah Whitley-Allen, 19; Matias Nobile, 18 and Parker Cavalier, 18, on Saturday, Parrott said. Whitley-Allen was charged with six counts of burglary and possession of a controlled substance, all felonies, and unlawful possession of cannabis, a misdemeanor. Nobile and Cavalier were charged with five counts of burglary each, all felonies.

A surveillance photo of a private residence from a video camera that faced the street assisted police in solving the series of burglaries, police said.

The three men are scheduled to appear in court May 22.
