On 12/17/2017 an officer was dispatched to 565 Willow Street APT A for a report of a burglary. The officer spoke with the caller, who was identified as Thomas Cookson, and his paramour, Patricia Gutshall. Cookson stated that he believes people(s) have gained unauthorized entry to his apartment and believe that it may happen again. The officer was directed to his front window which he explained was unlocked, and the screen was bent.
Cookson explained that he believes it to be the maintenance employees for the apartment complex because they have been coming and going for several maintenance related incidents. He said that this is the second time now that he has found both of his front windows unlocked and is concerned because he and his girlfriend always check to make sure the windows are locked. He explained he noticed they were unlocked again this morning after waking up, prompting him to call the police. Cookson stated that nothing in the apartment was broken or stolen to his knowledge.
