The story, as relayed by our community police officer, is this:

"The officers found the door as described. To our amazement the owner was home passed out on his couch. We woke him and he maintained no crime had been committed, he alluded that he had to cause the damage to gain entry into his unit. He obviously has not concerned himself with repairs."

The orange sticker on the window is a false alarm sticker.
