On May 26 at approximately 8 p.m., Evanston police responded to a car burglary that had just occurred with two male offenders in the 1700 block of Keeney Street. Police officers touring the area subsequently came across witnesses who advised of another car burglary that had just occurred in the 2000 block of Washington Street. Officers subsequently located two subjects in the area, and after further investigation, witnesses identified the subjects detained by police as the offenders in the two car burglaries, said Commander Jay Parrott of the Evanston Police Department.

Police recovered property from the one of the subjects that linked that offender to a third car burglary that was reported in the 1700 block of Greenwood St. approximately one hour earlier, said Commander Parrott. He said police linked the two subjects to a total of four car burglaries, and linked one of the men to a residential burglary in the 800 block of Brown Avenue on May 18.

The two subjects, ages 17 and 18, are both residents of Evanston. They were each charged with four counts of burglary, and one of the men was also charged with residential burglary.
