Truck stolen from teenager’s home

A pickup truck was stolen from a teenager’s home near Dawes Elementary School, 440 Dodge Ave., on Wednesday night, police said.

The woman, 19, told police she had her keys in her possession and that the truck was locked at the time of the incident, which occurred between around 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

The vehicle, a 1990 GMC black pickup truck, was parked on the street outside her home in the 400 block of Dodge Avenue.

Two cars ransacked in the same block

Two cars were ransacked in the same block of north Evanston on Tuesday night, police said.

A police officer was writing a report for a different motor vehicle burglary in the 2700 block of Central Street when he found the contents of the central console and the glove compartment of one of the cars, a 2003 Honda, strewn about, Dugan said. The officer then found the owner, who said nothing was taken. The man said he had parked the car there sometime on Tuesday.

Another car, a 1997 Toyota, was ransacked in the same block.
