Sorry, wrong apartment

March 2, 2009 7:27:38 AM PST
A Wisconsin man left his apartment for just five hours.

But he came home to find everything gone.

A quick thief?

No, just a landlord's goof.

Police in Madison report the apartment that was supposed to have been cleaned out had the same number but in a different building.

After Edward Peterson called police, he found most of his missing stuff a trash bin.

His TV and remote were the apartment's rental office.

But Peterson says his DVDs, CDs and books have vanished.

He adds his credit cards and about $300 in cash are also gone.

The landlord says Peterson will be fully compensated for his loss.
