Burglary, Forced Entry

At 10:51 a.m. June 4, a Grand Rapids Community College police officer was dispatched to the corner of Barclay and Lyon, where construction is going on for the college’s new preschool. The complainant said it looked like someone tried to break into the trailer on site. That morning he opened the door and realized there was no power when he tried to turn on the lights. After checking the breaker box just outside the trailer, he saw that several breakers were switched off. Two screens were on the ground near the trailer. He turned the power back on before calling the police. The officer found smudges on the window where the screen and frame were gone, like someone had tried to slide it open. He saw the same thing on the other window, only the screen was cut out from the frame. Fingerprints were taken from each window and the three taken the from the south-facing window were of the same print. Nothing was missing or out of place in the trailer or anywhere on the construction site.
