SUNSHINE Coast residents are being reminded to keep their doors locked, even when they're inside.

A burglar who robbed a North Buderim home in the pre-dawn hours of July 21 was in such a hurry to get away they left their shoes behind. 

Jean Harris had got up to let the cat out about 4.15am and left the door unlocked.
