Blotter: Door kicked down in apparent attempted burglary

Joshua Irvine, Copy Chief

Evanston Police Department officers responded Thursday evening to a report of a burglary in the 2000 block of Warren Street. 

A 78-year-old Evanston resident called police around 9:10 p.m. after hearing a loud noise and finding the back door of the residence kicked in, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew. When officers arrived, they checked the inside of the home, which the resident shared with their spouse, Glew said. No suspects were found, and it is unclear if anything was taken.

After the incident, three people found in the area were stopped and detained by police, Glew said. However, there is not enough evidence at this time to charge them with burglary, Evanston police communications coordinator Perry Polinski told The Daily in an email.   

The people detained have stated that they wish to sign a complaint, and the investigation remains ongoing.
