CRIMS have managed to break through a locked security screen and steal a handbag from a Hervey Bay home.
Police said the security screen was only locked from the inside making it easy to break through.
A car was also broken into at the Kawungan property but nothing was reported stolen from the vehicle.
An iPad and Acer laptop were also snatched from the house.
