A man came home from work early Wednesday and found that someone had broken into his apartment in the 2000 block of Teasley Lane and stole his 51-inch television.

The man told police he works at night and left about 10 p.m. Soon afterward he received a call from his former girlfriend who used to live in the apartment with him. She knows he works nights, he said, and he was curious about why she would call.

When he returned, he learned that his patio door had been pried open and the big TV, as well as a smaller TV that was in his bedroom, were missing.

His neighbor told him that she saw his former girlfriend there while he was working, the report states. He said she had tried to take the TV once before and lives “with a bunch of meth-heads” now.
