A 61-year-old Evanston man reported Wednesday that belongings were stolen from his residence in the 200 block of Ridge Avenue.

The man told Evanston Police Department officers that he woke up Wednesday morning and found personal items placed on the foot of the bed where he was sleeping. The items had been in his closet the night before, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

After looking around his apartment, the man told officers that he noticed his front door was damaged and that $60 in cash and a Swiss Army watch valued at $150 were missing.

Police noticed that the lock to the front door was lying on the ground in the apartment’s entrance. They estimated that the burglary took place between 11 p.m. Tuesday and 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The man told officers that he did not hear anything suspicious during that time, but he was asleep.

Purse taken from car

A 46-year-old Skokie woman reported her purse and its contents were taken from her car Sunday.

The woman told EPD officers she was loading groceries into her car in the Food 4 Less parking lot at 2400 Main St. around 3 p.m. After loading the groceries, the woman drove home and noticed her purse was missing from the front seat.

There is currently no further information, Glew said.
