Thieves targeted two homes on Lady Court and another home on nearby Canyon Drive.

The first break-in occurred on Lady Court at 9pm when an intruder removed a fly screen from a bedroom window and stepped inside onto a bed.

The person was immediately disturbed by the home owner’s dog and fled the scene.

One home owner, aged in his late 60s , told the News he was inside with his wife at the time watching a movie.

‘‘Our dogs were barking and we were looking out the front window,’’ the home owner said.

‘‘We didn’t know the thief was trying to get inside our bedroom window.

‘‘We found a wet footprint on our bed but the dogs must’ve scared him off.’’

Two hours later thieves returned and broke into two neighbouring homes.

Police said jewellery was stolen from a house on Canyon Drive while a 54-year-old female was home .

On Monday another break-in was reported on Drysdale Circuit, Beaumont Hills.

Thieves cut through a fly screen and stole a handbag with an iPhone, jewellery and a wallet.

A 42-year-old female was upstairs with her in-laws and came downstairs after hearing a noise.

She found contents of her handbag dumped in the backyard.

Police are forensically examining each house and appealing for any information.
