Doylestown Borough Police are investigating a burglary and reports of theft this week.
A resident of the 300 block of Maple Avenue recently reported that someone entered an unlocked rear door and removed a MacBook Pro computer from the home.
Police Chief Jim Donnelly said the resident had fallen asleep on a couch in the living room and forgot to lock the door. Someone entered the home and stole the computer, but left without taking anything else, possibly because the thief heard or saw the resident in the other room, Donnelly said.

The computer is valued at $1,199, according to police reports.
