Broken Pipes Flood Burglarized Home

DES MOINES, Iowa -- When a Des Moines couple returned home from a trip to see their new grandchild, they were greeted by a cold, wet and costly scene.

The Des Moines Register said that on Tuesday, Mary and Charles Pope found their house lights on, water on the floor and ice in a toilet bowl.

A burglar had tossed a brick through a glass door to get inside their home. Cold air rushed in, freezing a pipe to the ice maker in a refrigerator. The pipe burst, and water poured out onto the kitchen floor and down into the basement.

The burglar took a 42-inch flat-screen television, jewelry and other items, leaving a mess and a jagged hole in the door.
