Here’s your Wednesday morning briefing from CWBChicago:

STREETERVILLE — A disguised iPad was found taped to a women’s bathroom wall on the Northwestern Memorial Hospital campus Tuesday morning, according to police and a source. Around 11:40 a.m., a woman discovered the device in a restroom on the second floor at 251 East Huron. Police were called and an evidence technician recovered the iPad for forensic testing. Chicago police declined to say if the iPad’s camera successfully recorded any footage. Nonetheless, CPD has classified the case as “unauthorized videotaping.”

CWBChicago was created in 2013 by five residents of Wrigleyville and Boystown who had grown disheartened with inaccurate information that was being provided at local Community Policing (CAPS) meetings. Our coverage area has expanded since then to cover Lincoln Park, River North, The Loop, Uptown, and other North Side Areas. But our mission remains unchanged: To provide original public safety reporting with better context and greater detail than mainstream media outlets.
