Oak Bluffs Police are investigating two home robberies on Thursday. The break-ins took place between noon and 10 pm while the occupants were not home.

Thieves broke into a house on Prospect Ave. by cutting open a screen on an open first floor window. The only item reported stolen was prescription medication, police said.

That same day thieves entered a house in Waterview Farms, off Barnes Road by pushing in a window screen on an open crank-out window, police said. The burglars stole a computer and an iPad.

A neighbor told police that he saw two males leaving the house at approximately 5:45 pm, Thursday in a dark colored Toyota Prius. The driver of the Prius was described as a white male, approximately 17-years-old with brown hair and wearing a flat brim baseball hat. The second male was described as white, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build, blonde hair and well tanned.
