  1. It’s getting ridiculous and the police have had zero presence. Over the past two months between Main & Cleveland there have been over 6 home break-ins, many catalytic converters stolen, a stolen vehicle was dumped, and a car that had all wheels stolen left on blocks. Not to mention, the mailman who was robbed at gunpoint for mailbox keys. Southwest Evanston is not on Evanston Police radar and it’s infuriating. The detectives said there’s nothing they can do. They could at least up patrols in our area instead of doing absolutely nothing.
