OPA-LOCKA, Fla. - Miami-Dade police officers responded to the Marianitas Sister's House in Opa-locka, after they reported hearing a burglar on the roof.

The Roman Catholic nuns have a small chapel and a day care at the home at 2781 NW 135 St., east of the Miami Opa-locka Executive Airport.  

The nuns reported hearing loud noises coming from the ceiling and were frightened enough to call police officers who responded to investigate about 11 p.m.
