Thief Posing As Contractor in Buckhead

Via APD:

This man is posing as a contractor and entering residences without permission. The homes he enters are usually under renovation.

Once inside the homes, the male suspect steals wallets and jewelry, mostly small items which are easily concealed; then leaves the residence.

Our recommendation is for contractors to maintain a log on site for individuals to sign in and out for work details.  Residents are encouraged to secure personal items while work is in process at their homes.
