A female resident of the Chateau Royale Apartments said she went inside "for a very brief time" and left her car unlocked.

It was long enough that someone broke into her 2005 model and took a $30 gift card, a cell phone, a $400 fur coat and a $300 black leather coat. They also got some pills.

A witness reported seeing a tall black male in an older model white sedan in the parking lot.

He said he was assured by the IRS that any charges against him would be dropped.
