“I spoke with (the resident) who advised that she was contacted by her landlord, who stated that when he arrived at the home to do some cleaning due to an upcoming inspection of the residence he noticed the rear door and front door standing open,” the report written by a Springfield police officer says. “(The woman) stated that she was told that all of her appliances had been removed by an unknown person.”
