Anne Arundel County Police are searching for a man they say has posed as a worker for a local water company in order to burglarize homes.
Police responded Friday morning to the 200 block of Hammonds Ferry Road in Linthicum where a woman said that she was approached by man who said he worked for a local water company and was investigating a water leak.
He followed her into her home, and a few minutes after he left, the victim noticed some of her personal property was missing, police said in a release.
Police believe a similar scheme was carried out by the same suspect in the last week.
The man was described by police as Hispanic male wearing a blue baseball hat, blue shirt and tan pants, and may not have been acting alone.
If anyone has any information related to this burglary, please contact the Northern District Detective Unit at 410-222-6135 or Metro Crime Stoppers.
