WILMETTE, Ill., April 16 (UPI) -- Two stolen laptops were recovered from a garbage can -- along with marijuana -- suburban Chicago police say.
Wilmette, Ill., police told the Chicago Tribune they were called to a house Thursday and told that two Apple laptops valued at $2,200 and $360 were missing.
Officers found the computers in pillow cases inside trash cans in the back yard, but they also found an undisclosed amount of marijuana and two pipes, along with whiskey and beer bottles, police said.
One of the home's four residents said the drugs and paraphernalia were taken from the room he shared with a roommate on the first floor.
The other two residents, whose rooms are on the second floor, reported nothing stolen, and one of them slept through the burglary.
Police Chief Brian King said none of the residents has been charged, but the investigation is not over.
"Obviously, it's an unusual burglary," he said.
