Joshua Irvine, Copy Chief

A woman called police to report a burglary and vehicle theft occurring in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to a residence in the 2700 block of Sheridan Avenue at 8 a.m. after a woman reported that her house had been burgled and her car had been stolen, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

Glew said between midnight and 7 a.m. someone entered the woman’s home and took her purse as well as the keys to the house, two bottles of an unspecified alcoholic beverage valued at $75 and a key fob for the woman’s Mercedes-Benz. The woman’s Lexus was also found ransacked and the keys to the vehicle were missing, Glew said.

In addition, a Land Rover belonging to the woman was stolen from the residence’s driveway. Glew said the keys to the vehicle had been left in the car’s center console and the car’s doors had been left unlocked.

Evidence technicians responded to the scene, Glew said. Police have no suspects and no one in custody.

Rental car reported stolen

A Hertz car rental agency reported Wednesday afternoon the theft of one of their fleet after the renter failed to return the vehicle.

The manager of the agency, located in the 1900 block of Green Bay Road, told police that a man with a Florida driver’s license failed to return a vehicle rented from the Hertz on May 3, Glew said. The vehicle, valued at $20,000, was due back May 7; Glew said the manager of the Hertz intended to file a complaint.

Police have the identity of the renter but no one in custody.
