Blotter: iPhone stolen from middle school girl

Ashley Capoot, Reporter

A woman reported on Friday that a 14-year-old girl’s phone was stolen at Nichols Middle School.

The 49-year-old woman who reported the incident said the girl’s gold iPhone 7, valued at $700, disappeared while the girl was not looking. The woman turned the phone off remotely so it could not be used, Evanston Police Department Cmdr. Ryan Glew said.

The woman said she also used an app to locate the missing iPhone, and it showed the phone in the 1800 block of Main Street.

The phone has not been located, and there are currently no suspects.

Package stolen from Evanston residence

A 52-year-old woman reported Thursday that a package was stolen from her residence in the 200 block of Custer Avenue.

The woman said she ordered a light brown tote bag and wallet valued at $350 from the Home Shopping Network. She has a security camera outside her residence that connects to her phone, so she saw the postal worker deliver her package, Glew said.

A few minutes later, the woman also saw a man take the package and flee northbound on Custer Street. EPD officers arrived at the scene and examined the footage.

There are currently no suspects, and no one is custody.
