Two Middle Road residents who returned home Saturday night from a funeral found their home had been broken in to and several pieces of jewelry missing, Lt. Scott Nix said.
The residents noticed the entry into their home had been forced and the amount of jewelry missing was "extensive."
Officers checked other homes in the vicinity to see if any others had been broken in to, but nothing was found.
Nix said if anyone noticed anything suspicious that night to call the Sudbury Police Department.
The case is under investigation.
