Police concerned about Anna break-ins

ANNA, Texas -- Police in this growing community between Sherman and McKinney are warning homeowners about a late night string of break-ins.

Investigators say Anna ranks among the top 15 safest cities in the state, so homeowners aren't accustomed to having to look out for things like this.

Police were called to the Camden Parc subdivision on Tuesday night after a woman reported finding her back door wide open -- even though she said she left the house with the doors locked.

The unusual part about this: Nothing was taken from the residence. Police got two other calls about the same thing happening at different homes in the same neighborhood.

Sgt. Chad Butler said even though police are only investigating two cases, they believe the break-ins could be more widespread.

"People began to check their exterior doors. Two different residents located what they thought might be pry marks on the door," he said, adding that it appears the burglars are using some sort of tool to force doors open.

Police want to remind everybody to double-check to make your doors and gates are locked.
