Purse stolen from car early Sunday

Someone stole a purse from a car parked near Northwestern early Sunday, police said.

A 24-year-old female resident of Bartlett, Illinois, said she parked her car at Burger King, 1740 Orrington Ave., Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

The woman said she went inside the restaurant to eat and when she came back, her Michael Kors purse worth about $55 was taken. The purse contained her driver’s license, credit cards and medication, Dugan said.

There were no signs of forced entry and detectives are following up with security camera images of the incident, Dugan added.
