Ben Winck , Assistant City Editor

Officers are investigating a case of criminal damage to a vehicle in west Evanston that occurred between Sunday evening and Monday morning.  

A 65-year-old Evanston woman parked a gray Chrysler sedan in front of her residence at about 10 p.m. on Sunday before returning to it at about 11 a.m. Monday to find her driver’s side mirror broken, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The police arrived at 11:53 a.m.

The decision whether the crime is a misdemeanor or a felony depends on the cost of the damage, Dugan said.
