A 66-year-old Evanston woman reported Thursday that her wallet containing $180 in cash was stolen from her apartment in the 1600 block of Emerson Street, police said.

The woman said she believes the burglar entered her apartment between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. using her keys, which she said went missing while she was doing laundry in the building the week before, Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said.

There was no evidence of forced entry, and the police have no leads on suspects, Polinski added.

Items valued at more than $14,000 stolen from Evanston home

A house in the 1000 block of Colfax Street was burglarized Sunday, with over $14,000 in possessions reported missing, Polinski said.

A 41-year-old resident told police he came home Sunday night and found the front door unlocked, Polinski said. He reported that his $2,500 Apple laptop computer, a $12,000 Rolex watch and several other pieces of jewelry were missing, Polinski said. The resident has not yet estimated the total value of all the jewelry stolen, he said.

Polinski said the likely point of entry was a basement window, which police found broken when they checked the house. Police currently have no suspects, Polinski said.
