Alleged booze purchase nets tickets for siblings, companions

An Evanston woman, who Wilmette police say bought alcohol for her under-aged brother and his friends, earned a ticket for her alleged sisterly efforts, as did the four teens.

Emily Schnoll, 22, of 2302 Noyes St. in Evanston, was cited for unlawful delivery of alcohol, a village ordinance violation, as a result of the July 23 incident at Foremost Liquors, 275 Green Bay Road.

Police issued a local ordinance ticket for possession of alcohol by a minor to Ethan Schnoll, 18, of the same address. Tickets for the same violation were issued to Samuel O’Donnell, 18, of 2303 Harrison St. in Evanston; Lloyd Shatkin, 18, of 635 Judson Ave. in Evanston; and Alexander Heuer, 18, of 1422 Ashland Ave. in Evanston.

Police said the incident happened around 6:30 p.m., when an officer patrolling Green Bay Road was flagged down by a pedestrian. The witness told the officer that there were several under-aged customers in the liquor store, either buying or in possession of liquor. The officer discovered that Emily Schnoll had allegedly bought what police described as “a substantial quantity” of alcohol for her brother and his friends. The report did not quantify what the amount was.

Police confiscated the liquor, issued the tickets, and provided court dates for all five. The initial report did not state the dates.
