Homeless Man Sorry For Break-In

A homeless man who broke into a Post Falls church to get out of the cold last week, left behind a note of apology. A janitor for the Zion Baptist Church, 15276 E16th Ave., found the broken basement window when he began his usual cleanup duties Saturday morning. Pastor Seth Hohenstreet said the break-in occurred between 9 p.m. Thursday and Saturday morning. The janitor found the following note on a stove: “Hello, I am so sorry for breaking the kitchen window on accident. I only needed an overnight stay. I tried to be careful with the opening of the window. I did not take anything, I needed to get in out of the cold.” Pastor Hohenstreet estimated the cost of the broken window and frame to be $200. He didn't want to press charges. He filed a police report to have the matter documented.
