A person inside the home called police after she recognized Turkowsky and saw him causing havoc, the report said.

When police arrived, they spoke to an Uber driver who said Turkowsky asked to be taken to his ex-girlfriend’s home. Once they arrived, Turkowsky told the driver to “wait a couple of minutes,” the report said.

Police said that Turkowsky caused $3,500 worth of damage, breaking a glass table, damaging the screen of the back porch and smashing multiple flower pots.

A woman at the home told police she dated Turkowsky for two years but hadn’t heard from him since they broke up in April.

Turkowsky, 55. is facing charges of burglary and criminal mischief of more than $1,000.
