A Nokesville home was broken into Tuesday, but officers believe the family dog deterred further entry into the home.

Prince William Police Officers responded to a residence located in the 14500 block of Stephen Street in Nokesville (20181) to investigate a burglary, Jan. 2 at 4:45 p.m.

The homeowner reported to police that the burglary occurred sometime between 12:10 p.m. and 4 p.m.

“The investigation revealed that entry was made into an attached garage through an unsecured door,” said police spokesperson, Officer Nathan Probus.

A door in the garage leading to the interior of the home was found damaged. It appears a dog inside of the residence may have deterred any further entry into the interior of the home.

No property was reported missing.
