An employee of Childtime daycare reported a burglary at the facility Wednesday.

The Skokie resident said she arrived at the daycare in the 300 block of Ridge Avenue about 6:10 a.m. and found a camera and laptop missing from the building, Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew said. The woman said the facility was thought to have been closed and secured at 6:35 p.m. the night before. She said the burglary must have occured between closing and her arriving the next day.

She told police that after checking the buildings doors a second time, she found two had not been shut all the way and that may have been how the burglar entered the building. Police did not find any signs of forced entry.

There were no children in the building at the time, Glew said. Nothing else was discovered missing.

Glew said there were no security cameras on the premises and police do not have any suspects.
