Man Claims Intruder Broke Into His Home Stole Nothing And Cleaned Up
The telltale signs of a break-in are broken doors and windows, open drawers, shit on the floor... sometimes an actual shit in the toilet (they get nervous apparently).
But one bloke in the US claims he came home to find his house had been broken into - and was tidier than how he left it.
Nate Roman from Marlborough, Massachusetts, said he had been out with his five-year-old son and noticed the back door was open upon his return.
Naturally fearful, the 44-year-old claimed he entered cautiously, but after a quick scour of the premises, he realised that nothing had been stolen, rather the house had been tidied.
At this point you're probably thinking, 'is this Nate bloke sure he didn't just leave it tidier than he remembered and leave the back door open?'.
Well, seemingly not, as the home invader apparently made all of the beds, organised his boy's cuddly toys and even made little origami roses with the toilet paper... Now I don't know about you, but I ALWAYS remember when I've made origami roses with the toilet paper.
But surely now, you're thinking, 'OK, looks like a cleaner accidentally cleaned the wrong house'.
Well not Nate, who says he was 'terrified' by the experience and called the police.
According to ABC 7, he said: "It was terrifying to know someone was in your house. They scrubbed everything down. They did the shower, did the toilets.
"Nothing had been taken, nothing. Other than just being rearranged and cleaned and put away, put straight, that was the biggest thing.
"I was immediately worried that someone was in the house."
Yeah I would've done the same thing Nate - "Police! Police! Come quick, someone has cleaned my house free of charge. Everything is so damn clean and straight in here."
But just to be extra safe, Nate has also since changed all of the locks - god forbid those cleaners get in again.
Credit to Marlborough Police Department though, who said they were taking the matter very seriously, which is more than I can say for myself.
The police don't have any leads or suspects as of yet though... Perhaps they should call around a few of the local cleaning companies.
Meanwhile, all we can do is wait and hope that this home invader is legit and coming to a neighbourhood near us some time soon.
