Atlanta Police are searching for Ashton Thomson an alleged brazen burglar who has a bizarre trail of crime.
In the Glenwood Park neighborhood, police said he entered a home with someone inside and helped himself to drinks and food before stealing a car, bike, and other items.
In a video provided by a homeowner, the shirtless intruder is seen carrying what appears to be a large light fixture.
He unscrewed the porch lightbulb then rang the doorbell at a second home.
“He’s bold and he’s not afraid I mean everyone has cameras and ring doorbells,” said a woman, the homeowner who didn’t want to be seen on camera.
The intruder was unable to get in her Glenwood Park neighborhood house but the homeowner said she believes he’s the same guy who did break into a home a few blocks away.
“They went through the garage to get into the house,” said Brian Whitfield.
He said the intruder, identified by Atlanta Police as 23-year-old Ashton Thompson, ignored the family dog and let out the cat then stole electronics, cash, checkbooks, and more.
As this was happening a house sitter was upstairs.
Before he left, Whitfield said the bizarre burglar helped himself to beers, Gatorade, and food, leaving leftovers in the garage.
“He probably started with the beers and beverages outside and came in and got hungry and grabbed a snack. He left it in the garage,” said Whitfield.
Police suspect the bizarre burglar may have broken into Whitfield’s home twice a week.
Officer Stephanie Brown told FOX 5 News the intruder first stole Whitfield’s bike then rode it to the second house where he left it. She said he then apparently returned to the Whitfield’s home to steal the items and a car.
“At this time we do believe that these two incidents are connected,” said Officer Brown.
The bike was later returned to the Whitfield’s then a few days later the intruder returned to the second home to try to get inside.
Mr. Whitfield said it’s fortunate no one has been hurt so far.
“Sooner or later he’s going to break into a house where they’re going to run into people that’s my biggest fear the next time,” said Whitfield.
