Blotter: Van stolen from U-Haul store

Clare Proctor, Assistant City Editor

An employee at the U-Haul Moving & Storage store on the 2100 block of Dempster Street reported Wednesday that one of the company’s white Ford vans had been stolen.

The employee told the Evanston Police Department that a 49-year-old Chicago resident had rented the van on Dec. 4 and had extended the rental agreement multiple times, EPD Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. When proper payment was not made, U-Haul advised the renter over the phone to return the vehicle, which he has not done, Glew said.

Glew said the van is valued at $40,000.

Documents, phone charger stolen from Honda Odyssey

A 58-year-old Evanston resident reported that her 2018 black Honda Odyssey had been broken into between 6 p.m. Tuesday and 2 p.m. Wednesday.

The vehicle was parked in the 1900 block of Orrington Avenue. The woman said the vehicle’s registration, insurance and owner’s manual had been taken, in addition to a phone charger and $1.50 in change, Glew said. The woman told officers she thinks she forgot to lock her car doors.

Glew said the Evanston resident does not want to pursue criminal prosecution.
