A woman and her nephew called police to report a burglary. They said that her ex-boyfriend broke into the house and stole $2,000 in cash and a hot plate. The officer asked how they knew it was the ex-boyfriend and the nephew replied that the ex-boyfriend had called him to say he was coming over to get his hot plate back, the report said.
According to the report, the nephew said he arrived home from work that evening at 9 p.m. and saw his window open. He went inside and the hot plate was gone and so was the $2,000 that he had hidden under his bed, the report said. He said the hot plate didn’t even belong to the ex-boyfriend and that it belonged to his aunt. He said they had just broken up a few days prior. Police tried to reach the suspected ex-boyfriend to no avail.
