The homeowners said they left their house about 9:45 a.m. and locked all the doors but didn’t activate the security alarm. When the woman came home about 7:30 p.m., she found a bedroom window had been smashed and the room was in disarray, police said.

Although the alarm hadn't been set, security cameras at the house showed the man and a dark-colored, four-door sedan that police said was likely involved in the burglary.

The car drove up and down the street several times between 11:13 a.m. and 12:40 p.m., officers said.

Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS (8477).
