A woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with retail theft at CVS Pharmacy, 1711 Sherman Ave.

The woman was spotted putting items from the store’s shelves in her purse, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. After she made a purchase, a loss-prevention officer from the store found cocoa oil and toothpaste that she had not paid for in her purse. The products were valued at about $12.

The woman is scheduled to appear in court May 10, Dugan added.

The vehicle’s owner, a 42-year-old man, had parked his car in the area around 6:40 a.m., Dugan said. When he returned, he found a red brick smashed through the driver’s side window. Three dollars in change was stolen as well as a tool bag, which was recovered by police.

There are no suspects, Dugan added.
