Blotter: Vehicle vandalized on Howard Street

Joshua Irvine, Copy Chief

Police responded to a report of vehicle damage in the 1600 block of Howard Street on Tuesday evening.

A 38-year-old female Chicago resident called police to report that a mixture of oil and antifreeze had been poured on the exterior of her car, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew. The woman had parked the car at 5:30 p.m. and returned to the vehicle at 9 p.m., when she discovered the damage.

Glew said the woman suspected the vandalism was committed by an ex-boyfriend of her teenage daughter. Police have no one in custody.

License plate stolen in parking garage

A woman called EPD to report that her car had been broken into in the 1800 block of Maple Avenue.

Glew said a 51-year-old Evanston woman told police she parked the car on the fourth floor of a parking garage on Maple Avenue in November 2018. When the woman returned from vacation at 6:30 p.m. yesterday, Glew said, she found that the driver’s side backseat window had been smashed and the rear license plate was removed from the vehicle.

Nothing was stolen from inside the vehicle, Glew said, and no CCTV was available to capture footage of the incident. Police have no suspects and no one in custody.
