The following incidents were listed among the official reports of the Winnetka and Northfield police departments. Readers are reminded that an arrest does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination.
A Prada purse and contents valued at $1,300 were stolen from the park district’s Tennis Shack, 530 Hibbard Rd., some time between 1 p.m. and 3:15 p.m. June 27. The tan-colored purse was left unattended. It contained a Coach wallet, money and credit cards; a checkbook; Ray-Ban sunglasses and a cell phone.
Two bicycles were reported stolen June 27 from a rack at 858 Green Bay Road. In one case, someone stole a locked bicycle between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. by cutting off a cable lock, which was left laying on the ground. The white Giant Boulder girls’ bike was valued at $342.
