Police responded to a home in Pontiac Park, Mich., around 6:30 a.m. Thursday on a report of an active burglary. The homeowner, who could not be identified by The Associated Press, believed there was someone who was trying to break into his garage. Inside, police found two tools and a bottle of gasoline used in an electrical fire. It was unclear whether the fire was connected.

O’Connell said he contacted police and that they made contact with his ex-girlfriend. He said police asked him to바카라사이트 return a note he left with her in order to prove to them he did not write the note. “I took it back, and they took i
