The Beit Yitzhak home of a senior employee at the Prime Minister's Office was burglarized overnight, Ynet learned Monday.
The HaSharon Subdistrict Police are conducting a manhunt for the thieves, who stole a briefcase, various electronics and a computer. They did not contain classified information, sources said.
Authorities stated that they do not believe the robbery was related to the nature of the employee's work and the burglars did not know his identity.
At the time of the attempted break-in, the man and his wife were at home in the living room. Their housekeeper saw the burglars in another area of the house and screamed, scaring them away.
The man's home, which has a CCTV security system, had been burglarized in the past. This time, the intruders gained entry by breaking in via the front door.
The incident is the latest in a string of incidental robberies of security officials – which are not believed to be related.
