Suspects broke into a home in the village while the residents were away, at some point between 4:30 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. on Sunday. When the couple returned home they found an open window, ransacked cupboards and a hole in the patio door. The intruders appeared to have rifled through every room searching for valuables, according to a police statement.
