Woman disturbs burglars in home

A YOUNG woman disturbed burglars inside her house when she returned home after a couple of hours away during the day.

The 28-year-old Vista Close resident saw two males running off down the side of her house when she returned home at 1pm on Wednesday.

The place was ransacked and she called police.

It appeared as if nothing was taken but, disturbingly, the offenders had rifled through the woman's belongings.

Police were asking for anyone with information about the break-in to phone the Gympie station on 5480 4221.

Investigating officers said unknown offenders entered the home via an unknown means and went through all rooms in the house, rifling through drawers, cupboards and other storage items.

The woman could not give police much of a description of the offenders and nothing was noticeably missing.

Scenes of Crime officers attended and took prints of footprints found inside the residence and beside the house.
