Jewelry was taken from a master bedroom and other rooms were ransacked but nothing seems to be missing from them, police said.
The burglary took place between 2 and 6:30 p.m., and there are no signs of forced entry, police said, adding that entry may have been via an unlocked door in the back of the home.
Police are seeking any surveillance camera footage that captured activity on Melanie Lane or information from anyone who saw unusual activity in the area Thursday afternoon. They ask residents to seek information from anyone visiting their property during that time.
