A Mitt Romney supporter’s campaign sign disappeared from the lawn of a home in the 2300 block of Grant Street. And a man was arrested for shoplifting at Target. Those stories among the items in today’s Evanston police daily crime bulletin.

  1. Sign stolen

    Thank you homeowner on the 2300 block of Grant! I didn't know that you could call the police about a missing political yard sign. Now I know who to call when I am missing a "this yard has just been fertilized" sign, or if someone takes more than 2 pieces of candy from the bowl on my front porch tomorrow. 

  2. Well, I didn’t call the cops…

    But I had both an Obama sign AND a Jan sign removed from my lawn last Saturday night.  Crime seems to be rampant throughout Evanston!

  3. I have the opposite problem.

    I have the opposite problem. Somebody keeps putting a Romney sing on my front lawn.  This makes my neighbors think I'm some kind of greedy, heartless bastard.

  4. We in Evanston tolerate all

    We in Evanston tolerate all points of view as long as they match our own.
