Surrey RCMP descended on a South Surrey neighbourhood Monday, after a report of a break-and-enter believed to be in progress.
Witnesses report seeing at least six police vehicles in the 13900-block of 20 Avenue around 2 p.m.
Police say a woman called for help after returning home to find her door unlocked. It was initially thought the culprit was still inside.
A police dog team was dispatched, however, they were unable to pick up a track.
No one was injured in the break-in, and police have no suspects. Electronics and other items were taken.
Officers canvassed the area for witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 604-599-0502.
