KENSINGTON - While the residents inside were sleeping, thieves broke into two Kensington homes overnight on Sunday.
Police are currently investigating the brazen break, enter and thefts, which occurred on Centennial Drive. In each, substantial amounts of money were taken.
Chief Lewie Sutherland said police were called in to investigate just after 7 this morning. He added the homes weren't locked when the break-ins occurred.
"This is certainly not a usual occurrence," added Sutherland. "Most residential house breaks take place while the home owners are away."
Police are encouraging residents to lock their vehicles and homes to prevent these types of crimes from happening.
Anyone with information on these crimes or who may have seen a suspicious vehicle or individuals in the area overnight are asked to immediately contact Kensington police at 836-4499 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
