A burglar used a rock to smash in a glass door to get into a Southwest Side home earlier this week, Madison police reported.

Police were dispatched shortly before noon on Thursday to the 5500 block of Barton Road for the burglary and the preliminary investigation determined that the burglary occurred sometime after noon on Tuesday, officer Gracia Rodriguez said in a report.

Here are tips to prevent your home from being broken into. Remember, if you observe a suspicious person or behavior, call 911.

A glass door was smashed with a rock, unlocked, and then opened. The suspect or suspects went through the entire house, but nothing is known to be missing as there were minimal belongings in the residence, Rodriguez said.
