Shepparton police Crime Scene Services Leading Senior Constable Annie Clark said the woman’s family — including a young child — was asleep in its north Shepparton home during the brazen burglary.

She said one person was asleep on the couch just metres away from where items were stolen about 3am.

‘‘The mum heard a noise and when she went to take a look she saw a person standing in the passageway,’’ Ldg Sen Const Clark said.

‘‘She saw a man’s silhouette and he just turned and walked out the front door.

‘‘They’ve taken three mobile phones, two pairs of sunglasses, and a pair of Nike shoes. They also took a car key.’’

Ldg Sen Const Clark said the house had accidentally been left unlocked.

‘‘It’s very game of them,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s very opportunistic of them to just walk up the driveway, try the door and go into a house knowing people might be there.’’

In a second north Shepparton incident, a large amount of cash was stolen from a home about 3pm on Wednesday.

Two hours later, a Colliver Rd home was burgled and a shotgun allegedly stolen.
