HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Connecticut said burglars broke into a convent and stole from the nuns while they were sleeping.

Hartford police Sgt. Christene Mertes said someone broke into the Sisters of Mercy convent between 10:30 p.m. Monday and 5:40 a.m. Tuesday and took items including a book bag and a 2008 Toyota Corolla, the Hartford Courant reported Wednesday.

Mertes said the sister who reported the crime Tuesday morning said the nuns had been in bed by 11 p.m. the previous night. She told police she awoke to find a second-floor window had been opened.
