Samantha Handler, City Editor

Evanston police officers responded to reports on Thursday afternoon that liquor was stolen from the Jewel-Osco on Chicago Ave.

The store’s manager reported to police that two individuals stole liquor, said Perry Polinski, Evanston police communications coordinator. Police located the two men, who were together, around Elmwood Avenue and Lee Street, near the store’s location at 1128 Chicago Ave.

Police recovered the liquor, returned it to the store and warned the individuals not to return or they would be charged with trespassing, Polinski said. One was a 29-year-old Evanston resident and the other was a 48-year-old Chicago resident. Both were issued city ordinance violation tickets for theft.

Woman reports car damage

A 59-year-old female resident reported damage to her car after leaving it in a parking lot for four days, police said.

The woman parked her car in a lot in the 200 block of Brown Avenue on Sept. 15 around 9 p.m. When she returned to the car on Thursday around 6 a.m., she found damage on the driver and passenger’s side of the car. Polinski said the report did not go into detail about the type of damage or give any information about a possible offender.
