The caller reported he found the damage when he returned home at 1:30 a.m. He called police at 5:50 a.m. The man told police he had started drinking alcohol to calm himself down upon seeing all the damage. He told officers he wanted to make the report so that he wouldn't be blamed for the damages. He was being kicked out of the residence the next day for not paying rent, he said.

No footprints were visible in the snow outside the residence.

Officers are following up with the man.
