Tewksbury Police Headquarters.
Tewksbury Police are investigating one of the more bizarre crimes to come across their desk in recent years.
Two residences on Heritage Drive were hit by a burglar on Friday, Feb. 6. By itself, that might not be peculiar. What is very odd is what residents found when they returned home.
According to Tewksbury Police, a call was received on Friday at 7:35 p.m. from a resident at 8 Heritage Drive. The caller said she believed her home had been broken into while she was out. She said nothing appeared to have been stolen from the homes but the burglar had cleaned her bathrooms.
At 10:04 p.m., Dispatch received a call from 8 Heritage Drive and the caller told a remarkable similar story. The resident said they believed someone had broken into their home sometime during the day and, again, nothing appeared to be stolen. However, the burglar had cleaned their bathrooms.
Tewksbury Police say both cases remain under investigation.
