A Massachusetts man came home to discover his house had been broken. But to his surprise, the burglar cleaned the entire place and did not take even a single penny. Nate Roman, 44, informed that he and his 5-year-old son arrived at their Marlborough home on May 15 and found the back door open.
Roman said that he inspected his home and discovered nothing was missing. The presumed intruder, it appeared, had tidied the place up instead.
Nothing was damaged, taken or broken… just arranged in a really creepy way, he told local media.
He said he could smell bleach and other cleaning solvents, while his son’s room – which was messy when they left it – was neatly arranged and the bed was made. An Origami rose made out toilet paper was left on the bathroom door handle, he said.
"Not only did they not take anything (that I can find), but the purpose of the visit was to clean my bathrooms and bedrooms. They made the beds, vacuumed the rugs, scrubbed the toilets and left tp roses," he writes in his viral Facebook post.

Roman said it was possible that a housemaid may have confused his home for another residence. Marlborough Police said they have no suspects or leads in the case, but the situation would be considered breaking and entering – a misdemeanor offense.
He has since changed his locks - and kept the paper rose as a souvenir of the incident.
Earlier, Steve Valentine, a Birmingham resident, took to Twitter to reveal how his flatmate received an email from the apparent thief who had stolen the laptop that contained his university course work.
The thief wrote in the mail that he was poor and needed money. In fact, he even offered to send files that the student might need for his course work. Within no time the tweet went viral and after listening to such a bizarre story Twitterati could not help but shower sweet love on the thief's genuine gesture.
