Police Blotter: Two teens caught, not charged for attempted theft

Cydney Hayes, Reporter

Two teenagers attempted to steal sunscreen Thursday from Whole Foods Market, 1111 Chicago Ave., Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said.

A store employee reported the incident to EPD, but the grocery store decided not to file a formal complaint, Polinski said. The responding officers turned in the two 14-year-old boys to their parents, Polinski said.

The sunscreen was recovered and the boys face no further charges, Polinksi added.

Three cars burglarized on Dobson Street

Three cars were burglarized Thursday in the 1000 block of Dobson Street, police said.

The thieves entered two of the cars, a Toyota and a Honda, through unlocked doors and entered the third, an Acura, by breaking a window, Polinski said. The only missing item was an iPhone charger taken from the Honda.

The owner of the Honda, a 23-year-old man, reported three suspicious juveniles checking car doors, but the burglars fled the scene when the responding EPD officers arrived, Polinski said. The officers patrolled the area and eventually stopped two 15-year-old boys, but the Honda owner could not identify them, Polinski said.

One of the teenagers was turned over to his parents and the other was arrested for curfew violation, Polinski said.
