Mega-burglary in "super safe" suburb

Here's a megaburglary ($200,000 in jewelry and whatever else was in the safe) in a so-called "super safe" suburb (Moorestown, NJ). The house looks to me to be worth well north of $1 million.  The homeowners went away for the weekend leaving a broken alarm system and THE DOORS UNLOCKED!! because it's so safe in Moorestown.  (This is so monumentally stupid my spider sense warns me this may have been a insurance scam in which the homeowners are involved. I'm sure their insurance company is going to conduct a thorough investigation before paying out.)
