A man and his wife showed officers several opened doors inside the location which they had touched, so that eliminated the possibility of checking for fingerprints.

The rear door leading to the back yard was open, along with the kitchen door, a closet door off the hallway and the front door which leads to the entrance hallway.

There was no sign of forced entry on any of the doors.

The chain on the front door was unlocked and appeared to be the way the unknown perp exited the apartment. Apparently entry was gained through the back door from the yard.

Most likely whoever entered may have been scared off by the dog that was inside the apartment or noise from the second floor tenants.

The man and his wife say nothing was missing from their apartment but they would check again in case they overlooked something.
