Evanston detectives have arrested four Evanston males, all between 17- and 18-years old, in connection with a Jan. 15, 2012 burglary of a residence in the 1000 block of Michigan Avenue, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department. Approximately $20,000 worth of goods was stolen in that burglary, including jewelry, computers, cameras, I-pods and a guitar, he said.
Cmdr. Parrott said a police detective learned that a laptop computer and a guitar were sold to a business in Niles called Cash Convertors. The detective was able to identify the person who sold these items to Cash Converters and to develop information on the burglary, said the Commander.
The burglary suspect was arrested and detectives were able to develop information about three other males involved in the burglary. All four males were charged with one count of residential burglary.
After the arrests, detectives were able to recover several additional items that were taken in the burglary of the residence on Michigan Avenue. Additionally, police recovered two motor scooters that were taken from a garage in the 2500 block of Lincoln Avenue on Feb. 17, said the Commander. Three of the males were charged with an additional count of burglary of that property, he said.
