Man’s wallet stolen from Evanston restaurant

An Evanston man’s wallet was stolen from a restaurant Saturday night, police said.

The 30-year-old’s wallet was stolen from the bar area of a restaurant in the 1500 block of Sherman Avenue, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The wallet was stolen between 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The wallet contained credit and debit cards, Parrott said.

Later on Saturday around 11:30 p.m., one of the cards was used at a gas station in Skokie, Parrott said.

The card was used again on Sunday at another Skokie gas station, Parrott said.

There was no video of the theft at the Evanston restaurant, but Skokie detectives will investigate the offense committed in their village, Parrott said.

It is unclear if one person completed both unauthorized purchases, police said.

Storage facility burglarized Saturday

A storage facility in an Evanston apartment building was burglarized Saturday, police said.

Police responded to an incident in the 800 block of Reba Place after a resident of the building reported a broken lock, Parrott said.

The lock in the storage facility was broken with blunt force, Parrott said.

The burglary happened between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., police said.

It is not clear what items were taken from the storage facility, Parrott said.
