Someone broke into a Glen Burnie home through a bedroom window Monday, wrote in grease pencil on the walls and helped themselves to cake, county police said.
Lynne Callow, 40, of the 200 block of Gloucester Drive called police about 6: 45 p.m. after she found her house had been burglarized. According to police, the burglar wrote "Hi Paul" in purple grease pencil on her bedroom walls, hallways, kitchen counter tops and cabinets. Callow has a 14-year-old son named Paul.
"I'll probably have to redecorate the whole house," Callow said.
The thief also ate a piece of chocolate cake and smoked several cigarettes in the kitchen, police said. Officers found a T-shirt which appeared to have been used to remove make-up. Callow told officers a compact disc player, CD, a gold necklace, charm and diamond ring together valued at $535 were stolen from the house.
"The worst part about it, aside from my privacy being invaded, is that my 12-year-old daughter leaves all the lights on in the house now because she thinks someone is going to come in."
