Police said the 20-year-old Evanston resident left for vacation at 9 a.m. on Dec. 18. Upon returning to his home in the 2100 block of Maple Avenue around 11 p.m. on Jan 3., the man found the electronics — valued at $350 — missing, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan.

There was no sign of forced entry into the residence, Dugan said.
