Erica Snow, Assistant City Editor

A 20-year-old Skokie woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with possessing alcohol and ammunition without a license.

Officers stopped a vehicle in south Evanston after officers on patrol noticed the car did not have a rear bumper, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. Officers noticed an open water bottle with a dark colored liquid in it at the driver’s feet, who then confirmed it was alcohol. The vehicle smelled of “burnt cannabis,” Dugan said.

Officers also found 15 live rounds of ammunition, but the driver did not have an Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification Card. She was charged with misdemeanor possession of ammunition without a FOID and minor in possession of alcohol. She was also issued a traffic citation for her missing bumper, Dugan said.

Shots reported near Robert Crown

Two callers reported hearing four to five shots fired near the Robert Crown Community Center at about 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

One caller said they saw flashlights in the field adjacent to Robert Crown when they looked out, Dugan said. When police checked the area, nothing was located.
