Minot police are investigating a home invasion that happened this morning in southeast Minot as family members slept.
The call came in shortly after 4-am in the Green Valley neighborhood, south of the Fairgrounds.
The homeowners, Ashlee and Cameron Deschamp DE-shaw say someone first tried to break in through a back door on the house - and then moved on to a side door.
But a home alarm system apparently scared off the would-be robber.
Police say shortly after the attempted break-in, a vehicle was stolen in the same area.
Police then searched the Souris Drive area using tracking dogs and followed some footprints in the snow.
But the trail soon disappeared and no one was found.
As of tonight, there have been no arrests in the case.
If you have information about the attempted home invasion, contact the Minot Police Department.
