Owners of a residence on Haggerty Road in West Bloomfield Township returned home from vacation on Monday, Oct. 17 to find the interior of their home vandalized.
The homeowners came to their house and couldn’t get in the front door because the second bolt was deadlocked and they didn’t have a key for it, saying that they don’t usually lock it.
They then walked around to the rear and saw the basement windows broken and the screen to the bathroom torn apart.
When they got inside the house, they found the interior of their home destroyed, with the walls spraypainted, dry goods such as food dumped all over the house and liquids such as salsa and ketchup on the walls and furniture.
Some of the walls also had holes in them and bottles of alcohol were dumped and broken.
In the garage, oil and transmission fluid were dumped onto the floor.
The only item stolen was a guitar.
The incident took place between Oct. 7 and Oct. 17. Neighbors reportedly saw young males around the age of 13 in the home, but didn’t think much of it.
The incident remains under investigation.
