Wallet stolen from LA Fitness locker

A wallet containing a debit card was stolen Sunday from the men’s locker room at LA Fitness, 1618 Sherman Ave.

A 25-year-old man at the gym was changing when items were removed from his locker, Evanston police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. The Chicago resident also reported missing a credit card and a driver’s license from Michigan.

The card was reported to have been used at CVS Pharmacy, 1711 Sherman Ave., after the theft, so detectives will continue to monitor the case, Parrott said.

These kinds of thefts are a relatively frequent occurrence, Parrott said.

“We’ve had numerous incidents over the last couple of years on-and-off and in patterns of people breaking into the lockers of the men’s room,” Parrott said.

Packages stolen from mailroom

Several packages containing items were stolen from a building in central Evanston on Monday morning.

A 37-year-old Evanston resident said the packages were marked as delivered but were not found in the mailroom of the condo in the 2300 block of Noyes Court, Parrott said.

The packages contained a USB cord, a manicure kit, a DVD and other electronics totaling to about $57 in value, Parrott added.
