Two residences in the town's north end were burglarized early Sunday morning while the residents slept, according to police.
At about 4 a.m. Sunday morning, a Todd Street resident awoke to his dog barking, Hamden Police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith said. The resident then discovered that his basement window was broken the the cellar door was open, Smith said.
About two hours later, a West Woods Road resident found a broken basement window and open basement door, Smith said.
It hasn't been determined yet if anything was stolen during the two incidents, Smith said. Police believe that the suspect or suspects are breaking in to basements, as well as garages and cars parked there, in search of valuables to steal, he said.
In the wake of a rash of break-ins and burglaries, police have repeatedly warned residents to make sure all doors and windows are locked on homes and cars.
