The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and police were called to Nadya Suleman's suburban L.A. home at least five times in the year before she gave birth to octuplets, the celebrity Web site TMZ reports.

All in all, concludes CBS News correspondent Tara Mergener, no bombshells, but no good news, either, for a woman who can't seem to turn the tide of bad press.

Here's how they broke down, according to TMZ:

Jan. 9th, 2008: Police responded to a call that one child locked him or herself in a room. The cops picked the lock.

May 12th and Aug. 10: Twice, neighbors reported a possible break-in at the home. Both times, police find the front door had been left open.

July 8: Family Services responds to a neighbor's complaint that Suleman's children weren't clean or being fed properly. A later report says the charge was unfounded.

Oct. 27: Suleman calls police because, she says, one of her children is missing. Turns out the child had followed Grandma around the block.
