Samantha Handler, City Editor

A 49-year-old Chicago resident was issued a city ordinance ticket Monday after an attempt to take three Grey Goose vodka bottles from Target, Evanston police said.

The man concealed the bottles, worth about $180 total, in his backpack and tried to walk out of the store, 1616 Sherman Ave., when he was detained, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew. A 28-year-old Target employee reported the theft Monday at around 4:16 p.m. and knew the man from prior thefts, Glew said.

Police arrived, issued the man a ticket and said he was not allowed to come back to Target.

A 37-year-old Skokie resident reported that his bike was stolen from the Davis CTA station at 1618 Benson Ave.

The man locked his Trek Navigator bike in front of the station at around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, and when he returned around 4 p.m., the bike was missing, Glew said. The bike is worth around $300.

There is no more information on who took the bike.
