About $2,800 worth of technology and cash was stolen from an apartment in south Evanston after the resident, a 23-year-old woman, left her apartment at about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, police said.

When she returned around noon, the back door had been opened, Evanston Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. A pink iPhone 7 plus, a MacBook Air, a silver iPad mini, a laptop bag and a mason jar filled with cash and change were missing. In total, the items are worth about $2,800, Dugan said.

There was no sign of forced entry, and the woman told police she does not remember if she locked her back door or not.
