More than $500 in electronics stolen from apartment

Someone stole more than $500 worth of video games from a south Evanston apartment on Tuesday. 

A 58-year-old man said he returned to his home in the 1200 block of Harvard Terrace to find his Xbox gaming system, along with 30 video games, missing from his living room, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said. Police said the crime occurred sometime between 11 a.m. and 9:15 p.m. Tuesday. No suspects have been identified in the incident. 

The stolen items combined to a total value of about $600. Police said there was no sign of forced entry into the apartment. Parrott said it is possible the Evanston resident left his door unlocked.
