Blotter: Northwestern students report stolen items from apartment near campus

Ashley Capoot, Reporter

Three 21-year-old Northwestern students reported Sunday that several items were stolen from their apartment at 832 Simpson St. near campus.

The men said that items were stolen from their apartment between Dec. 19 and Dec. 28 while they were away on winter break, Evanston Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

One student told EPD officers that he noticed items were scattered across the apartment when he returned on Dec. 28. However, he did not realize that it was the result of a burglary until his roomates returned on Jan. 5 and found that the air conditioning unit had been pushed inside the apartment.

The men reported that a Samsung Galaxy cell phone, Sony PlayStation, Samsung Smartwatch, wallet contents and graphing calculator were among the missing items.

The security camera outside the residence only saves footage for a week, so EPD has no suspect, Glew said.

Bike stolen from garage

A 59-year-old male reported Sunday that his bike was stolen from his external garage in the 600 block of Judson Avenue.

The man told police that he was out of town from Dec. 28 through Jan. 4, and noticed the bike was missing upon his return.

Glew said there was no sign of forced entry into the garage, and there are no suspects.
