WATERFORD (WWJ) - Police believe the same man is responsible for a rash of home invasions in Waterford and they need your help finding the crook.
Investigators say the man, thought to be in his late teens or early 20s, is connected to three incidents that occurred over the last month in the 2000 block of Caterham, near Williams Lake Road.
In the most recent incident, officers responded to a residence around 4:15 a.m. Wednesday after the homeowner reported an unknown suspect had attempted to gain entry into the home through a locked garage door.
The suspect was recorded on the victim’s home security system during the incident, as well as on one of the responding officer’s in-car camera system prior to the crime being reported.
The same suspect is believed to have entered another home around the same timeframe through an unlocked door. In this instance, the suspect was able to get away with several items from the home.
Police believe the same suspect was observed on another home’s security system during a different home invasion that occurred on the same block around 2:45 a.m. on May 14. In this instance, the suspect was observed leaving the home with several stolen items.
The suspect is described as about 5-foot 10-inches. He’s been observed wearing a red hoodie, blue jeans, black over white gym shoes, black gloves with white on the outside and a green bandana covering the lower part of his face.
A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for any tips that lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact Waterford police at 248-618-7515.
