Three in custody after dispute over computer gear


Evanston police took three people into custody for questionning Tuesday night after a disturbance broke out over computer equipment at an apartment in the 2000 block of Maple Avenue.

A resident of the building told the Daily Northwestern that the dispute involved an allegedly stolen iPad that the victim of the theft hoped to exchange for a repaired MacBook Air.

Police spokesman Perry Polinski says police were called about 9:50 p.m. and were told that three people had pushed their way into an apartment in the building.

Police took three young adults — two men and a woman — into custody and took them to the police station for further investigation. Polinski says that so far no charges have been filed.
