An 32-year-old Evanston woman reported a stroller and a laptop, valued at nearly $2,000 in total, stolen from her home Monday afternoon.

The burglary took place in the 800 block of Forest Avenue, said Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan. Dugan said the woman left her apartment at about 1:15 p.m. Monday to find her front door propped open and rear door unlocked when she returned a half hour later, Dugan said. The laptop — worth about $1,500 — and $450 stroller were missing, he said.

There was no sign of forced entry, Dugan said.

Tires, rims stolen from vehicle

All four tires and rims were stolen from a vehicle parked in south Evanston early Monday morning.

The 43-year-old owner of the car said he heard his car alarm go off a few times at about 2 a.m. Monday but did not see anything suspicious when he checked where the car was parked in the 2400 block of Nathaniel Place, Dugan said. He later discovered the tires and rims missing and the vehicle left on blocks, Dugan said. The tires and rim are valued at about $300.
