An Evanston resident reported a burglary Tuesday after noticing multiple items missing from her apartment on the 1100 block of Dewey Avenue, police said.

The 48-year-old woman believes the theft occurred between Feb. 8 and Feb. 16, but she had not realized several pieces of jewelry, an iPad and an espresso machine were missing until Tuesday, when she reported the crime, Evanston Police Department spokesman Perry Polinski said. The items are valued at $2,800, he said.

There was no evidence of forced entry, Polinski said. EPD officers are currently investigating the incident, he said.
