A Burglary story

At around 8 pm on Friday my home was burgled. I’d just got back home when I realized that something was wrong. Although I was sure I had locked the front door when I left home but now it had stood wide open. Immediately, I wanted to know what was happening. As soon as I went in, I smelt cigarette smoke. I thought a burglar had broken into my home and he had smoked during the burglary. I felt frightened when I noticed that unfortunately the burglar was still inside my house and he was carrying my portable television. I gasped in shock.
