According to reports, he was seen driving an older model white Honda Accord with a red stripe down the side.

EDMOND, Okla - Nova is 150 pounds of protection.

Owner,Vanessa Nelson says there is no way an intruder is getting past her guard dog.

Nelson said, "It's a sense of security because she's so protective. She's a large dog and jumps on people and knocked them over."

Many of Nelson's friends and neighbors were not so fortunate.

Monday afternoon, someone kicked in the doors of at least 7 central Edmond homes.

One woman was asleep inside, with her 2-year-old son.

Edmond Police Department spokesperson, Jenny Monroe said, "Her husband wasnt home. They don't have any pets so there was zero explanation why she heard footsteps. She grabbed her son and got out and called us."

Since it was the middle of the day, most of the homes were unoccupied and easy targets for the burglar.

Edmond police say the intruder is passing over all the valuables like Ipads, jewelry and prescription pills.

The only thing he's taking, hundreds of dollars in change.

Monroe said, "Buckets of change, where you throw your loose change. They've been poured out over beds, dumped out and taken it. Odd burglary."

Police have a vague suspect description.

A young man, late teens, wearing gym shorts and a light t-shirt.

He was seen fleeing in an older model sedan.

Vanessa Nelson plans to double lock her doors from now on.

She plans on letting everyone know, Nova doesn't appreciate unwelcome guests.
