Officers from the Auburn Police Department were dispatched to a home on Skeet Hill Court on Jan. 20, in reference to a break in.
Upon arrival officers met with the homeowners who said that the night before when they returned home for the evening they had found a lot of blood outside their front door. The homeowner said that the front door was unlocked and when he went downstairs he discovered that someone had tried to enter the house through one of the windows. The victim said that the screens were off the outside windows to the home and that they were pushed in a little.
Officers investigated the area and found several small handprints on some of the windows but could not find anything else out of place.
The victim’s wife told police that she might know who broke into their home. She advised police that a former friend of their daughters had attempted to burglarize their home several times before.
The homeowner claims that the suspect had called him at work earlier in the day and asked for $40 that he claimed the homeowners daughter owed to him at which point he advised the suspect to stay away from his home and family.
No fingerprints could be lifted from the scene and after another search police could not find any more evidence.
The homeowner said he was going to make some changes and that this sort of thing would not happen again.
The windows were re-secured and officers left the scene.
