According the Wylie the victims had locked their front door, the only access point, when they left in the morning. However, when they returned home, they found it unlocked with no sign of forced entry, and the items gone.

The second burglary may have occurred between 9:45 p.m and 7 p.m and only small electronic items may have been stolen. Details of this incident are not yet available.

On another third floor unit the victims, a 31-year-old female and a 30-year-old male, had a Macbook Pro valued at $2800, MacBook valued at $1400 and an Ausprey hiking backpack valued at $120 stolen.
