A break and enter in Parry Sound has police reminding residents to lock their doors when they leave home.

Last Wednesday, West Parry Sound OPP were called after the homeowners returned just before 7:30 pm and found a man in their kitchen.

Police say the man got in from an unlocked door and fled after being discovered but not without stealing some food.

Police tracked down the suspected thief and charged the 27-year-old Parry Sound man with break and enter.

The OPP is reminding residents to always lock your windows as well when you leave home.
