The woman explained that she has several sheds and the doors are always closed to them, but never locked.
The woman said her son had come by earlier in the day and noticed that the doors were open to the storage building, but that nobody had been there in some time.
The victim noticed a pressure washer that was missing from the building nearest to the residence and that it was valued around 300 dollars.
