---- — DANVERS — Police are investigating a home break-in that occurred early last night on North Shore Avenue.

No injuries were reported.

According to scanner reports, police were seeking a balding, heavy-set man in his late 40s, driving a white Chevrolet Spark, in connection.

At 6:19 p.m. police received a call that the rear sliding door of 24 North Shore Ave. had been kicked in and an unknown suspect had entered the house.

Police said the homeowner’s son lives next door and heard the house alarm go off. He went over to check out the house and noticed the kicked-in door.

The case is currently under investigation, police said. A police dog was called to the scene but was unable to pick up the suspect’s track.
