GILROY, Calif. — A neatly executed burglary in which the culprit made a clean getaway had police baffled Wednesday.
No leads were reported in the case of a burglar who entered a Gilroy residence, hung new curtains after taking the victim's own set, went on a cleaning rampage and left a strange note.
The burglar made the bed, dumped the trash, did the dishes, stacked newspapers, put away the ironing board and put dirty clothes in a hamper.
"We have our suspicions, but nothing that indicates an arrest is imminent," said Gilroy Police Cmdr. Vern Gardner between chuckles. "We've had no more incidents of excessive cleaning."
