Police Request Help In Search for Daytime Burglar

Police are looking for a suspect daytime burglar described as a white male in his 20s.

Homewood Police Chief Larry Burnson is asking for your help in finding a man suspected of residential burglary.

A notice from the chief says the man is described as a tall, thin white male with light hair—somewhere in his 20s. Police say he drives a dark sedan, posssibly with a spoiler.

According to Burnson, the man goes around knocking on doors to see whether or not anyone is home. When a resident is home, police say he pretends to be looking for someone at the wrong adddress and then leaves peacefully.

Residents who may have information on the suspect burglar are asked to contact the Homewood Police Department.

If you think you see the burglar or his vehicle, police ask you remain calm and dail 911.

Margaret, I Have two loud barking dogs and I still got robbed. A friend got robbed with 2 loud barking dogs - they harmed one dog to the point she had to put him down. Dogs are a false sense of security.

Hopefully working together the Homewood Police will nab the perpetrators. But I have to ask what is with the Large Very Loud dogs barking for 5-10 minutes without owner intervention. Old Homewood used to be a place to quiet mornings. This goes on every day from early morning without regard to Sat/Sun mornings and then late at night 10-11pm. Owners - Be Responsible!

I agree with JungleJim. But in my 'hood, it's the very small yapping dogs that are a terrible nuisance. It starts at 6 am, regardless of the day of the week. If dog guardians would simply pay attention to their dogs they would not bark so continually. Pet your dog for Pete's sake, or let them in after they've done their morning evacuation.
