Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A bold burglar has led the Rochester Police Department to issue an advisory to homeowners about locking their doors.

Police are investigating a burglary that happened Sunday night at a home in the 1300 block of 50th St. NW.

The burglar entered the home through an unlocked patio door and took cash from a wallet - and also took a large jar of change from the bedroom where the owners were sleeping. Captain John Sherwin says the man and his wife slept through the burglary and discovered the crime Monday morning.

Sherwin says there have been some similar burglaries in the past week or so and he is reminding homeowners to ensure all their doors are secure before leaving or going to bed.
