Norfolk, Va.--Nicholas Southern returned home and realized a burglar had come in and used his bathroom.

"Sink is wet, there's urine on the floor-- just little stuff that I don't do," Southern said.

Southern had locked his front door, but when he returned home after buying furniture, the door was wide open.

He couldn't find anything significant missing, then he got to his bathroom.

"They used some of my soap," Southern said. "They used a bunch of Chanel cologne."

Southern cleaned up the urine that had leaked onto his bathroom floor.
Other than some hygiene supplies, nothing was taken.

He just wishes whoever did this had asked to use his stuff, rather than break in.

"I'm always willing to help somebody if you ask me, I'm more than likely to help if I can, it's not an issue," Southern said.

The lock on his door shows signs of someone trying to prop it open, so he worries it'll happen again.

"There's been some kind of burglary going on in the neighborhood, so I knew that, but I didn't know that eventually it would occur in my building," Southern said.

Southern's apartment was broken into just after noon Saturday. His next door neighbor Glen Hulick had someone go through his apartment around the same time Southern's was hit.

"There was money missing," Hulick said. "And then I open the top drawer, and look in the corner where I usually keep money and there's nearly 40 dollars missing," says the neighbor.
