Burglar leaves more at scene than he takes

March 23, 2009

Usually a home break-in results in items taken, but on Wednesday a burglar left several items at the scene.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

The resident of a home in the 1300 block of North 63rd Court arrived home about 11 p.m. to find the rear door open and locked pried off. His wallet was found just outside the door. But although numerous drawers, rooms and closets were rummaged through nothing seemed to be missing.

Instead, a hammer was left on the table, a screwdriver was found in the yard and a shoe and car air fresheners were found in a couple of rooms.
