Baltimore County police are seeking a man in connection with two burglaries in the Parkville and Wilkens areas.
Roderick Dawun Joyner, 33, of the 3400 block of Kimble Road is wanted on two counts of first-degree burglary.
Joyner allegedly entered a house in the 8000 block of Old Harford Road on Oct. 6 and stole a purse.
A neighbor said he saw the man leaving the house, and the man claimed he was doing yard work for the homeowners.
After the burglary, a man identified later as Joyner used one of the victim's credit cards at several area stores, police said.
In a second incident Dec. 5, Joyner allegedly entered a house in the 1900 block of Frederick Road through an unlocked back door and stole a wallet from the homeowner's purse.
The homeowner later received a call from someone posing as an employee from a credit union, who asked the homeowner for the personal identification number to her account. She refused to give that information over the telephone. A police investigation identified the suspect as Joyner.
Police described Joyner as black, 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds, with a light complexion, black hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000. Originally published January 4, 2005, 12:25 PM EST
