Detective: I need to survey the whole house and find a probable place of entry.
If you enter the garage
If you enter the north bedroom:
Detective: Look at the dirt. The burglar entered through this window. It isn't damaged in any way, and the window latch is open. And it can be opened only from the inside.
Lionel Duffing: But I'm sure I checked all the windows before leaving! How could this happen?
Detective: I'm not sure yet. But there's only one person who can answer this question. The burglar.

Suspect identification: When in Rome...Edit
Martin Tucker: You just made a big mistake, chump. You nosy types aren't welcome here. Maybe I should teach you a lesson with my trusty blade...
Detective: You made the mistake, not me. See this bulge in my coat? Never take a knife to a shootout, fella. Now, would you kindly answer some questions for me?
Detective: You made the mistake, not me. See this bulge in my handbag? Never take a knife to a shootout, fella. Now, would you kindly answer some questions for me?
Detective: Ok, I got the ID. Luckily the thug didn't notice the thing in my pocket was actually my wallet.
Detective: Ok, I got the ID. Luckily the thug didn't notice the thing in my pocket was actually my hairdryer.
Detective: Hey, lady! You broke into a house last night, through a window. I bet you didn't have time to sell the goods. Shall I call the cops?
Liz Montague: Please don't, I'll give you back the stuff! i didn't even want to rob the house. I just saw a cat opening the window to get out, and you know...
Detective: The girl has a heart of gold, but it might be wise to talk to her about all the animals she brings home.
Detective: Maybe you should have one of those cat flaps installed?
Lionel Duffing: I definitely will. Thanks for help!
