A wallet and an iPhone were allegedly stolen early Sunday morning from a coat at a party in the 1000 block of Garnett Place, police said.

The victim, an 18-year-old Chicago woman, reported the theft around 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon, but said the items were stolen from her unattended coat between 12:05 a.m. and 1:15 a.m. that morning, Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said. The iPhone is valued at $600, and the wallet containing the woman’s identification cards has not yet been valued, he said.

Polinski said the address is listed as off-campus Northwestern housing, but the woman is not an NU student. She could not provide a description of a possible suspect, so there is no suspect information at this time, Polinski added.

Multiple items stolen from Chicago Avenue drug store

The manager of a Walgreens in the 600 block of Chicago Avenue reported Monday that two men had left the store after each stealing multiple items, Polinski said.

The report came in around 6 p.m., Polinski said. Police arrived at the scene and found two radios and two sets of speakers, valued at $80 in total, missing from the store’s inventory, Polinski said.

The 40-year-old manager told police he saw the two men leave the Walgreens and head southbound with the items in their pockets, Polinski said. The manager described the two as black men wearing black coats, Polinski said.

Police checked the area but did not find the men, Polinski added.
