Evanston police report three incidents over a two-day span last week in which thieves stole items from unlocked cars — in the 600 block of Greenleaf Street and the 1300 and 1400 blocks of Washington Street.

And then there was the person who left a car running with the keys in the ignition in the 100 block of Hartrey Avenue only to return and find the car gone. Police found it nearby, in the 100 block of Grey Avenue, but the owner now will need to change the car locks — since the thieves took the keys with them.
