Police say a burglar made off with a cable box, red leather bag and black purse containing a debit card, swipe key card and keys to Shorewood High School.

A Shorewood woman came upon a man in the act of burglarizing her home Monday night, according to police.

At approximately 9:45 p.m. police say the man used an unlocked front door to illegally enter the home on the 1800 block of East Jarvis Street. There he stole a black AT&T cable box, red leather bag and black purse containing a debit card, swipe key card and keys. 

Officers were called and dispatched but were unable to locate the suspect.

A police investigation into the burglary is ongoing. 

In the wake of a slew of home burglaries in the past several months, police are reminding residents to take measures to avoid becoming a victim including locking doors and windows and keeping porch and entranceways well-lit.

Was it wise to report what the keys were for?

The essential bit of info missing is the description.

One would think that the thief would be able to figure it out from the swipe card...
