Naked man accused of breaking into home and destroying $50,000 worth of property

A naked man from Rochester Hills, Michigan, allegedly caused about $50,000 damage to a Bloomfield Township home before police interrupted his rampage earlier this month, authorities said.

Bloomfield Township police were dispatched to a home at 3pm on April 10, according to a report released on Thursday. Inside, they found Daniel Elliot, 53, a former family member who had allegedly broken into the home while the family were on vacation.

“Furniture was turned over and damaged, china was smashed, doors were broken, and several faucets were broke, causing the rooms to flood,” Bloomfield Township Police Det. Sgt.John Weise said. Weise said the amount of damage suggested Elliot had been in the home for a “significant amount of time.”

The $50,000 damage figure is a “rough estimate,” he said. Weise didn’t speculate about why Elliot had taken off his clothes. Elliot was arrested at the scene. He was arraigned on Wednesday on charges of second-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property. He remains in the Oakland County Jail on $50,000 bond.
