"To date no person has been arrested or charged in relation to the incident. Investigations are continuing," QPS said.

It is not known if anything was stolen during the break-in.

Cr Sutherland and Moreton Bay Regional Council have been contacted for comment.

Cr Sutherland and his wife bought the two-storey canalside home on a 1300-square-metre block at Newport for $2.1 million in 2008 from developer Robert Trask, a close associate and financial backer of the mayor.

Comment has been sought from Cr Sutherland.
