Watercooler Talk
MADISON, Wisc. (AP) - A man left his apartment for five hours and came home to find everything gone. An efficient burglar? No, police say, just a landlord's error. Police said the landlord manages different properties, and meant to have an apartment cleaned out that had the same number in a different building.

Instead, a worker cleaned out the apartment of 36-year-old Edward Peterson. Peterson found most of his property in the trash bin. He got the TV and remote back from the apartment's rental office. But some possessions were gone, including about 150 CDs, 10 DVDs and books.

Also missing were credit cards and about $300 in cash. The landlord said Peterson will be fully compensated for his losses.
