On Thursday evening, officers responded to Thayer Street for a report of a breaking and entering/suspicious activity that had occurred on Tuesday, June 5th. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the caller who stated she believed someone was in her apartment without her consent. When she had returned home from work that day she discovered that her refrigerator and freezer were completely emptied out and that both appeared to have been cleaned also. The caller looked around her residence and determined that nothing else had been removed.
Officers then spoke with residents of near-by apartments to see if they had noticed anything strange that past Tuesday. The residents stated that they didn't see anything out of the ordinary and that their own apartments had not been broken into.
After a quick investigation by police, it was found that an apartment within the same building was under renovation. Officers spoke with the new resident of the renovated apartment who was advised of the circumstances. She told officers that she had been expecting a house cleaner on Tuesday that never showed up. She also stated that she had spoke with the cleaner and was told by him that he was at her apartment and was cleaning out her refrigerator.
Brookline PD spoke with the cleaner, who admitted to being in the wrong apartment, cleaning out the freezer/refrigerator. He was apologetic and offered to replace any items over the confusion of the situation.
Officers then spoke with the original caller and notified her of the confusion. The caller was relieved and happy to know what happened. All parties in this matter have been identified.
