Evanston Police Department officers on Friday evening responded to a report of a theft from the common area of an apartment building in the 800 block of Hinman Avenue in south Evanston.

A 24-year-old Evanston resident told officers that a package of 48 Hill Science cat food cans were stolen after being delivered to his apartment building on Thursday night, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

The man didn’t initially pick up the package because he had to walk his dog. Another resident of the building asked the man if he had taken the package when she noticed it was gone from the common area, Glew said, and when the man checked he found it missing.

The area is under video surveillance, Glew added.

iPhone taken from Verizon display

EPD officers responded to a report of theft from the 2516 Green Bay Rd. Verizon Wireless store in north Evanston on Sunday afternoon.

An employee of Verizon told an officer that a tall man wearing a khaki jacket and Nike Air Jordans was “asking random questions” and, when left unsupervised, took an iPhone X off a display and exited the store, setting off the security alarm, Glew said.

Video surveillance footage can be requested by Verizon corporate, and will be forwarded to the EPD once available, Glew added.
