Someone appears to have broken into a Wheeler Road home and damaged interior doors and walls, turned up the heat and discarded multiple cigarette butts.
Police said the house recently was renovated and currently is unoccupied.
On Feb. 8 at about 12:45 p.m., the homeowner reported a second-floor bathroom door had been torn off its hinges and thrown down the stairs to the first floor, and a second-floor closet door had been ripped off its hinges and drywall in that closet kicked in.
Also, barefoot prints were found on a wall behind the bedroom door, cigarette butts were found in the kitchen and bathroom sinks, and the thermostat had been turned up to 80 degrees.
The owner had been in the home the previous day at 5 p.m. and found no damage. The owner found the main door was locked when he returned Feb. 8, but it had been left unlocked.
