Cameron Cook, Assistant Campus Editor

Evanston Police Department officers responded to a report of a theft at Blaze Pizza in downtown Evanston on Wednesday night.

A 23-year-old Evanston resident and employee of Blaze, located at 1737 Sherman Ave., told officers that three teenage boys entered the restaurant and removed the tip jar from the counter, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

The teenagers, two of whom were around 14-years-old and one of whom was around 16-years-old, left with the tip jar, Glew said.

The tip jar contained about $50, he added.

The Blaze employee requested officers follow up on the investigation after an immediate search of the area turned up negative, Glew said.

Man with guns, drugs released on bond

EPD officers on Oct. 18 arrested a Chicago man for possession of four MDMA pills, according to a Wednesday news release. A follow-up search of his residence Friday discovered he was also in possession of marijuana, more MDMA and also owned multiple guns without a permit.

The man was released on a $30,000 bond and will appear in court on Nov. 29, Glew said.
