A grandmother in Beaver Bank, N.S., found out her home was broken into by thieves this weekend while she and her grandson were asleep.

RCMP found a stolen vehicle in Cole Harbour on July 10  at around 7 a.m.

Officers went to a home in Beaver Bank to inform the owner that they had recovered her stolen vehicle. When they arrived, they found the garage door wide open.

The owner wasn't aware that while she slept, thieves had broken into her garage and stolen her vehicle.

Police also determined the thieves had been inside the home and taken several items while she and her grandson were sleeping.

As part of their investigation, police are looking for a Honda Civic that may have been in the area that evening. They did not provide any further description of that car.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
