"There have been a series of break and enters," a Rockhampton police spokesman said.

He said at least two of them involved the theft of "a substantial amount of property".

It’s understood more than $10,000 worth of property was taken from the Carlton Street property.

As well as that break-in, which was discovered about 6.30am, the other signficant break-in occured on Kershaw Street, North Rockhampton, and was reported to police later in the morning.

It’s understood this family had also been away for the Christmas period.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
