Three computers and miscellaneous jewelry was stolen from a house in the 700 block of Hans Avenue during the day on Feb. 10, police said.
Wylie said there is little the victims -- a 39-year-old woman and 41-year-old man -- could have done to prevent the burglary, which occurred sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
"This kind of case is pretty rare," Wylie said, noting that generally burglars enter homes and apartments through open doors and windows. The only thing Wylie could suggest to defend a home against a break-in such as this is an alarm system.
"We encourage people to have alarm systems at their house and to have them activated when they are not home," she said.
