WASHINGTON (AP) — An alarm company concerned about an open door called police to the Georgetown home of former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn on Thursday, but a law enforcement official said there were no signs of a burglary.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to release the information, says officers and two police dogs found nothing missing and nothing out of place at the house.

A message left with Strauss-Kahn's attorney wasn't immediately returned.

Strauss-Kahn quit his post at the IMF on May 18 after he was accused of sexually attacking a New York hotel maid. He has denied the charges and is living under house arrest in Manhattan pending his legal case.

Neighbor Michele Camden, 55, said she had seen a moving truck outside the Strauss-Kahn house Wednesday and speculated that a mover may have left a door ajar. She said she had never seen Strauss-Kahn at the house and said people in Georgetown tended to respect the privacy of even famous neighbors.

"We might make some underhanded comments but we just leave people alone," Camden said.
