The resident told them that she left her apartment at approximately 12:45pm to go out for the day.When she returned home at 8:15pm she found the basement door window smashed. She said that when she arrived home this evening, she went into the basement to find the basement light turned on, the two storage unit doors were open, and there was glass on the ground. She said that the basement light is never on and that the doors to the storage units are always closed shut.
The basement door leads to a back staircase to which the backdoor of all three units can be accessed as well as the basement area. There was broken glass on the staircase leading down into the basement.There were additional pieces of glass on the basement floor near one of these storage units.
It appears that entry was made by smashing the basement window and then reaching through the window to open the door from the inside door knob. There appears to be a pry mark on the basement lock from the outside, but the tenants were unsure whether it was there before tonight. After making entry, it appears that the suspects targeted the basement area where the storage units were located.
At this time it is an on-going investigation .
