Officers in Weymouth are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after a burglary in the Westham area of the town.
The incident happened between 12.45am and 8am on Sunday 20 July 2014 at premises on Shirecroft Road.
It is believed that entry was gained through an unlocked kitchen door while the occupants were asleep. Thieves stole electrical goods, cash and jewellery from the kitchen and living room before leaving. Among the items stolen was a Dell XPS15 laptop, an Alienware M18XR2 laptop, a Samsung GTS5230 mobile phone and a Fuji digital camera.
Police Constable Dave Thorne, of Weymouth police, said: "This crime is very upsetting for the victims - especially to know that someone was in their house uninvited while they were asleep.
"I am appealing for anybody who has information that could help the investigation to contact the police soon as possible.
"I would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered similar items for sale in strange circumstances or for unusually low prices.
"I would also like to stress the importance of keeping your property secure even when you are at home. For crime prevention advice, please visit our website on the following link: http://CrimePrevention.dorset.police.uk."
