SHARE Police: Teens stole fossil rocks, glasses and loose change from unlocked vehicles in Evanston

Two teenage boys have been charged with burglarizing vehicles in north suburban Evanston on Thursday night.

About 11:20 p.m., officers responded to a call of people checking vehicles’ door handles in the 2600 block of Central Street, according to a statement from Evanston police.

The officers stopped the two boys, ages 14 and 15, near some parked vehicles in the alley of the 2700 block of Central Street, police said.

The boys matched the caller’s description and were carrying a Garmin GPS, loose change, three pairs of glasses, fossil rocks and a wallet that had another person’s identification and credit cards, police said.

An unlocked vehicle in the area appeared to have been burglarized and the owner of that vehicle identified the fossil rocks and one pair of the glasses as being stolen, police said. The vehicle had been left unlocked at the time of the burglary.

The teens, both from Wilmette, were charged with one count each of burglary to a motor vehicle and petitioned to juvenile court, police said. Their names were not released because of their ages.
