Blotter: Laptop stolen from St. Mary Church

Clare Proctor, Assistant City Editor

The director of St. Mary Parish reported a stolen laptop belonging to a 37-year-old chaplain of the church on Tuesday.

At 11 p.m. Tuesday, the chaplain noticed a broken window in the church, located at the corner of Lake Street and Oak Avenue. He then realized his silver Apple MacBook Pro, valued at $1,800, was missing from his desk, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. The chaplain was not present when the director made the report to EPD officers, Glew said.

Officers think the point of exit might have been the rear door of the church, which was left open, Glew said.

There is no suspect and no one in custody, Glew added.

Package containing fishing line stolen

A 52-year-old Evanston resident reported that a package containing monofilament fishing line was stolen from his residence in the 100 block of Main Street.

The man told EPD officers that his package — valued at $30 — was supposed to be delivered on Feb. 27. When the package didn’t arrive, he checked the order status, which said UPS had delivered the fishing line on Feb. 20, Glew said.

The order status included a picture of the package lying in front of the door to his apartment building, accessible to anyone on the sidewalk, Glew said. There are no suspects and no one in custody, he added.
