Two burglaries of unlocked vehicles in the 1900 block of Orrington Avenue in the overnight hours of Tuesday were likely committed by the same offenders, although it is too early to tell for sure, according to Evanston police.
It’s easy to leave something behind when the weather is bad, as thefts seem to spike in restaurants and libraries during foul weather. Today’s daily crime bulletin from Evanston police has a number of examples from the recent snowy weekend.
After a little light lake effect snow overnight, the City of Evanston is scheduled to wrap up cleanup operations from this weekend's major storm by banning parking on the odd-numbered side of most residential streets today.
An overnight snow route parking ban will be in effect from 11 p.m. tonight until 6 a.m. Sunday morning on main roads in Evanston, and snow emergency rules will affect parking on side streets Sunday and Monday.
