Bloomington blotter: vehicle theft and potential trespassing

Stolen vehicle

A 2015 Subaru Impreza was stolen from a Varsity Properties' parking lot between 10 p.m. Friday and 8:15 a.m. Saturday. 

It is unclear how the car was stolen as the owner still has the keys to the vehicle.

Police have been unable to locate the car.

Possible trespass

A landlord with property on South Rogers Street contacted police Saturday morning after finding evidence of an individual living in the basement of one of the landlord's properties. 

The landlord contacted police after going to check on the property in the renters’ absence and found a door from the basement to the outside kicked in. It appeared someone had been sleeping in the basement and diverting heat from the upstairs. The landlord does not rent out the basement of that property.

The people renting the upstairs portion of the property are currently out of the country.

The landlord was unable to give a clear timeline of when the individual might have broken into the basement.

The individual in question was not located.

Natural death

Penny Andrews-Mintz, 58, was found dead in her apartment on Basswood Dr. late Friday night.

A neighbor of Andrews-Mintz saw her through a window and knocked on the door in an attempt to get her attention. The neighbor contacted Bloomington Police when Andrews-Mintz was unresponsive.

Police say she had many medical problems and the death was natural. Her family has been contacted.
