Man returns to Hastings home at 1:30 a.m., finds it damaged, begins drinking then calls police four hours later

The interior of a trailer on Radford Road was destroyed.

Holes were punched in the drywall and the kitchen was destroyed. An estimated $1,000 in damage was done to the trailer.

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.
