Prowlers smashed through a sliding glass door and absconded with a "heavy safe" from an Elmhurst house, police said.

Elmhurst police officers reportedly headed over to the North Oak Street house about 5 p.m. Saturday after the resident found the back door shattered.

"It looked as if items were stolen because something large had been dragged across the floor," police said.

Officers then "learned a heavy safe was tossed down the stairs and removed from the scene," police said. "The contents of that safe included foreign currency, important documents and identifications."
