Blotter: Money stolen from Insomnia Cookies

Ashley Capoot, Reporter

A 24-year-old male employee of Insomnia Cookies at 1725 Sherman Ave. reported on Sunday that another employee had been stealing money from the cash register.

The man said he was suspicious after the night manager at the restaurant had been “opening drawers at an alarming rate.”

A security team monitored the night manager’s shift on Jan. 5 and noted that he was taking money rather than processing sales, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

On Jan. 5, $52 was taken from the restaurant, and it is unknown how long the night manager had been taking money, he added.

Gaming system stolen from apartment

A 31-year-old man reported Friday that items were stolen from his apartment near the 800 block of Brummel Street in west Evanston.

The man said his Microsoft Xbox One gaming system, valued at $300, was missing from his bedroom when he returned home from work at around 5:30 p.m.

There was no sign of forced entry, but the back door to the apartment was unlocked, Glew said.

The man said his girlfriend, roommate and roommate’s girlfriend were still in the apartment after he left for work that morning, but he does not believe those individuals were part of the burglary.

Glew said it will be difficult to find the gaming system because there was no serial number.
