A Skokie man was arrested Monday in connection with stealing more than $300 worth of alcohol from the Jewel-Osco supermarket in southwest Evanston, police said.

At 1:10 p.m., a security guard observed the 27-year-old man placing bottles of alcohol in plastic grocery bags into his shopping cart at the grocery store at 2485 Howard St, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The security guard saw the man push his cart out of the store, at which point the guard stopped the Skokie resident, Dugan said.

The man was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.

When he returned to the car on Monday at 8 a.m., he noticed the front interior was in disarray and that his Apple EarPods and a flashlight were missing.
