Dorset Police are advising residents of Dorchester to make doubly sure their doors are locked at night.
The warning comes after a thief got into a house in Wardbrook Street, Poundbury in the early hours last Monday.
The offender was disturbed and ran off, taking some small items with him as he went, although some were discovered later in the day in the Maiden Castle Road area.
Police are appealing for witnesses.
