THE REST OF THE STORY - (stolen from Wikipedia)

In June 1972, Frank Wills, at the age of 24, was working as a private security guard at the Watergate office building on the shores of the Potomac River.[3] This was the location of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters. In the one year that Wills had worked here, there had been only one attempted burglary so his job was not of major importance. It was also considered so safe that security officers in the building only carried around a can of mace.[3]

On the night of June 17,[5] Wills noticed a piece of duct tape on one of the door locks when he was making his first round.[1] The tape was placed over the latch bolt to prevent the door from latching shut. He removed the tape and continued on his patrol. Thirty minutes later, Wills came back to the door and he noticed there was more tape on the door. Without hesitation, Wills rushed up to the lobby telephone and asked for the Second Precinct police.[3] Five men were found in the DNC offices and arrested.[6] Details that emerged during their questioning and trials triggered the Watergate scandal. The five men arrested were Bernard L. Barker, Virgilio Gonzalez, Eugenio Martinez, James W. McCord Jr., and Frank Sturgis.[7]
