The Federal Bureau of Investigations has offered Evanston police its assistance in solving last week’s robbery in which three men reportedly stole upwards of $200,000 in art from an Evanston couple after knocking them to the ground and restraining them with duct tape.

Friday's terror plot, aimed at two Jewish locations in Chicago, was only "narrowly averted" and the Jewish community of the North Shore reacts.

The packages were addressed to unnamed Chicago locations, which were later revealed to be a Jewish community center and synagogue. Despite this, the Jewish community in Evanston remains unshaken.

There was no extra security outside of the worship center on Dodge Avenue and the entrance doors were unlocked, welcoming congregants and visitors. "Basically, we're not scared," said Shirley Gould, a member of the congregation. That seemed to be the …
