MADISON, Wis. -

A burglar stole electronics and other items while three roommates slept, according to a release from Madison police.

The burglar was in at least two bedrooms while the roommates slept, police said.

Police urges residents to keep doors and windows locked because most criminals will get into a home through unsecured doors and windows.
