A criminal in Massachusetts that broke into a home last week definitely made a clean getaway.
Nate Roman, 44, a homeowner in Marlborough, MA, came home from work on May 15th and found that his home had been broken into. He said that it’s possible he forgot to lock the back door, as whoever entered his home didn’t have to break anything to gain entry.
After inspecting his home, he found that nothing had been stolen, but the entire place had been cleaned from top to bottom. The rug was vacuumed, toilets were scrubbed, beds were neatly made, and the perpetrator had even left behind ornate origami roses on the toilet paper rolls.
The only room in the house that was left untouched was the kitchen.
Yes, you read that right. Whoever entered Roman’s home didn’t steal a single thing, they just cleaned it really well. Except for the kitchen, apparently.
Do you think this cleaning bandit is available to hit up my home while I’m out picking up groceries tomorrow?
Roman described this unusual break-in as “weird and creepy” and decided to report the incident to the police.
According to Marlborough Police Sergeant Daniel Campbell, this is a stand-alone incident. The department hasn’t heard of any other situations like this one. “We have not received any reports similar to this in other locations, and we have no suspects at this time,” Campbell said.
The homeowner, Roman, still has no idea who entered his home to clean it. His theory is that a housekeeping service may have mistakenly gone to the wrong address, and entered through the door he accidentally left unlocked.
At least he finds the humor in it. “It’s funny now, but didn’t feel funny at the time,” Roman said. “I kept the toilet paper roses as souvenirs.”
