Police in Arlington County, Va., report a resident called to say while they were away on vacation, their apartment had been broken into. Nothing was reported missing but it had been cleaned.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin with another installment of Bizarre Crimes. A resident of Rosslyn, Va., returned home around midnight after being away on a trip. The person walked into their apartment and discovered that someone had broken in. Nothing had been taken, but some items had been moved around. And the entire place had been cleaned. I mean, yes, bad that someone broke into your apartment. And I understand calling the police. But I'd also maybe write the culprits a thank-you note. It's MORNING EDITION.
