Police have issued a warning to people in the West Midlands area after a series of unusual burglaries. Reports have shown that nothing was stolen during any of the burglaries, but houses were left much tidier.
“The first thing I noticed upon entering the victim’s house was an overwhelming smell of Fabreeze.” said DI Shipton “From what we’ve seen, the burglar has no intention of stealing anything. He’s specifically targeting dirtier households and cleaning them.”
Because of the burglar’s impeccable hygiene, the police have been unable to find any fingerprints or clues. Police suspect the crimes – if they can be called that – are being committed in protest against the declining standards of hygiene in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
If you have any information on these burglaries, please contact Barry Scott immediately, as he is worried he might soon be out of a job.
