A 20-year-old Chicago man faces burglary charges after Evanston police say they spotted him loitering around a car that had been broken into.

Commander Tom Guenther says that early Friday morning officers on patrol in the 700 block of Sherman Avenue saw the man standing around the parked car which had its dome light on and papers tossed on the ground around it.

When the man noticed officers watching him, he tried to leave the area, but the officers stopped him and discovered that he had what Guenther called “an inordinate amount of coins in his pockets.”

The officers also noticed that at least two cars in the area had been ransacked.

After talking to the suspect and the car owners, officers concluded the man had grabbed the coins from the cars.

The state’s attorney’s office authorized filing two felony counts of burglary to a motor vehicle against Kwar Boog, of 624 W. Sherwin Ave. in Chicago.

He’s scheduled to appear Wednesday morning in district court in Skokie.
