SUGAR LAND - Thieves broke into five Sugar Land homes on Thursday, and all of the burglaries happened in the afternoon.

Burglars busted out a backdoor window at a home in the 1400 block of Coleridge, located in the Telfair section of Sugar Land.

Once inside, the thieves went room to room and stole electronics and jewelry. The homeowner told Local 2 police think the thieves were in and out in under three minutes.

A home in the 3400 block of Water Locust Drive was also targeted by thieves. A backdoor window was broken and several rooms were ransacked. Stolen from the house was jewelry and a couple of guns.

Police were called to the 2100 block of First Crossing Boulevard for a burglary. Sometime between 2:50 p.m. and 4:45 p.m., thieves got into the backyard through an unlocked gate and broke out a back window.  They also stole jewelry and electronics.

In the 2500 block of Planters Row, some burglars also used an unlocked gate to get into the homeowner's backyard they then removed a window air conditioning unit to get into the house. The homeowner told Local 2 the suspects stole a large amount of jewelry.

"Oh it's horrible," said the homeowner who asked to have his identity hidden because the thieves haven't been caught yet. "I've been here 15 years and never had anything like this happen. They took all of my wife's jewelry, it's all gone."

At 1:17 p.m. police responded to an alarm that was going off at a home in the 13800 block of Charter House Way. Crooks kicked in the front door and rummaged through the master bedroom. Two laptop computers were taken. 

"I always brag about how safe it is here," said one homeowner. "But anything can happen anywhere I guess."

Sugar Land police don't know if the crimes are related as they are still investigating.
