Police responded to a complaint outside Nordstrom in Old Orchard Mall on Christmas Eve. According to the report, the victim’s car’s passenger and driver’s side doors were kicked in. The man told police that he parked next to a black Mercedes-Benz S-Series and when he returned he noticed both of his doors kicked in and a business card that read, “Learn how to park ass****, get a real car.”
A Skokie man came into the police station to report that someone illegally used his license plates on Jan. 7.
