Thieves have stolen cash and valuables after watching Wodonga homes for an opportunity to sneak inside while the occupants were still home.
Two houses on Beard Crescent and Stapleton Court, which both backed onto Susan Campbell Reserve were targeted between 7.30pm and 8.30pm Wednesday.
Wodonga Detective Senior Constable Justin Foots said a small amount of cash was stolen from one home and a mobile phone from the other, but occupants did not realise thieves had been inside until the items were gone.
“It appears they whey were casing the joint and someone could have looked through the blinds,” he said.
“There might have been other people who have been hit.”
Anyone with information or who believes they may have also been a victim is asked to contact Wodonga detectives on (02) 6049 2700.
