A wallet containing $250 in cash and various identification cards was stolen Monday from a purse left unattended at Evanston Township High School, police said.

The theft was reported by a 16-year-old Evanston resident who realized the wallet was missing from her purse after she left it unattended outside a classroom, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. House keys were also stolen from the purse, he said.

The thief’s identity is currently unknown, Dugan said.

Private Christmas lighting display damaged

A Christmas lighting display in the backyard of a single-resident home in the 300 block of Florence Avenue was damaged, police said.

The 72-year-old male homeowner told an Evanston Police Department officer that the display was damaged twice, first at about 7 a.m. on Jan. 3 and again at about 11 a.m. on Jan. 5, Dugan said.

Dugan said the person responsible for the damage is unknown, and an EPD officer has not yet been to the home to report on the extent of the damage, although it is estimated at $60.
