Ventura police are reminding residents to lock their doors and windows after a hot prowl burglary was reported in the area.

Authorities said occupants of a home on the 200 block of Lincoln Drive were asleep when their home was burglarized. The victims told police they woke up early Tuesday morning and noticed that items were stolen from different areas inside their home.

Investigators said because there were no obvious signs of forcible entry, the suspect may have entered the home through an unlocked window or door. No one was injured.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Ventura Police Department at (805) 339-4441.
