WASHINGTON, June 2 (UPI) -- Washington police called to the upscale waterfront home of former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn Thursday found nothing missing or out of place, police said.
They went to Strauss-Kahn's Georgetown home near the Potomac River after being notified by an alarm company responsible for the home that the door was open, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia told United Press International.
At the home, police "found the door ajar," spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told UPI in an e-mail. Police dogs "swept the house," finding nothing unusual, she said.
A maid at the home told police "she must have accidentally left the door ajar," triggering the alarm, Crump told UPI.
Nothing was reported missing and police found no signs of forced entry, Crump's e-mail said.
Strauss-Kahn, considered a leading candidate for the 2012 French presidency, quit his post as managing director of the International Monetary Fund May 18 after being accused of sexually attacking a housekeeper at the Sofitel New York hotel four days earlier.
Strauss-Kahn, 62, who is married to former French broadcast journalist and heiress Anne Sinclair, has denied all allegations and was placed under house arrest in New York in an $82,000-a-month townhouse pending his legal case.
He was indicted by a grand jury May 19 to stand trial on seven criminal charges. If convicted, he could face up to 25 years in prison on the most serious charge.
His next court hearing is scheduled for Monday.
