Blotter: Tires slashed in north Evanston

Cameron Cook, Assistant Campus Editor

Evanston Police Department officers responded to a report of slashed tires on a gray 2007 Ford Escape in the 1400 block of Foster Street in west Evanston on Monday morning.

A 25-year-old Evanston resident called the police after discovering two of her tires were flat, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

The resident told officers that her neighbor sent her a Facebook message at around 2:30 in the morning, saying she saw air coming out of the tires but not who slashed them, Glew said. He added that a side view mirror was missing, and that there was granulated sugar near the gas cap.

The resident didn’t know who slashed her tires, but told officers that an “ex-boyfriend might have been upset due to a recent breakup,” Glew added.

Cash stolen from Soapies

EPD officers responded to a report of a burglary from the Soapies dry cleaner at 2504 Gross Point Rd. in west Evanston on Monday morning.

Sometime between Saturday night and Monday morning, someone pried open the rear door’s mail slot, broke the deadbolt and took $350 from the cash drawer, Glew said.

Soapies does not have any security cameras or alarms, Glew added.
