Clare Proctor, Assistant City Editor

Two different individuals reported their personal belongings stolen on Thursday from the Music Institute of Chicago at 1702 Sherman Ave.

The first, a 36-year-old woman, reported at 9:30 a.m. that her black leather wallet had been taken from her bag, which she left unattended in her office, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

At 4:30 p.m. Thursday, a 48-year-old Waukegan resident reported her purse and wallet stolen from her backpack, also at the Music Institute of Chicago. The woman said the contents were valued at $600. The suspect in the first incident is a 17-year-old black male, approximately 5’6” and weighing 150 lbs, Glew added. There is a high probability the two incidents are related, he said, but there is no one in custody.

Duffel bag stolen from apartment lobby

A 39-year-old resident of 610 Hinman Ave. reported the contents of a package delivered to his apartment complex stolen Thursday between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.

The package contained a $149 black and yellow duffel bag, Glew said. When the apartment resident went to receive his package from the lobby of the complex, he noticed the package had been opened, and the duffel bag was missing.

There are no suspects and no one in custody, Glew said.
