The complainant reported that he accidentally left the exterior bathroom door unlocked and when he returned in the morning, noticed blood on the walls and that toilet paper had been stolen. A review of the exterior camera footage helped police identify a known subject. The investigating officer interviewed the suspect, who reported that he used the bathroom and took the toilet paper because his toilet was flooding and that he used the purloined TP to mop up the water. The business declined prosecution but requested that the subject be served with a trespassing notice. Police responded back to the residence at approximately 1:18 p.m. when a plumber, who had been fixing the aforementioned plumbing problem reported that his phone was missing. The resident denied stealing the phone, and calls went immediately to voice mail. The complainant was unable to access his phone locator feature as of this report. The investigation is ongoing.
