The residents of both houses were home at the time of the break-in, and police say both houses had windows that were unlocked.

Jeffrey Tarter was one of the homeowners, and told NBC 10 Boston he was in asleep in bed when he heard intruders enter his home.

"They found my wallet on my desk and we had a little money in that, so they took that," Tarter said. "We called police, that was the first thing, and they were right on the spot."

Police say no one was injured. Authorities are urging residents to keep their doors and windows locked, even if they are home.
