Prowler caught on home surveillance in Blythewood

BLYTHEWOOD – When Summer Pines resident Kristen Locklear received a text from her home surveillance system Saturday morning, April 28, she said she checked the camera video and found footage showing a male driving into the cul-de-sac where her home is located. The time on the video was 2:30 a.m.

“He parked his car, a dark sedan, and calmly got out and walked up to our neighbor’s car in the driveway, looked in the window, then walked over to my husband’s personal pickup truck and then to his work truck, both parked in our driveway.  He looked in the windows and checked the tool boxes in the back of the truck. He attempted to open doors and tool boxes and appeared to be covering his hand with his sleeve so as not to leave fingerprints,” Locklear said.

Locklear reported that the doors on the trucks were locked, and that there were no valuables in the vehicles, but that seeing the scene unfold on the video unnerved her.

About five minutes after the man drove up, she said, he left.

“He did not stop on his way in or out of our street to check any other vehicles. He came straight down into the cul de sac, parked and checked out all of our stuff, and then left. It looked like he had damage to the rear hubcap on the driver’s side of the car,” Locklear said.

Locklear said she reported the incident to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department. She said this was the second time this kind of incident has occurred at their home.

“In October, 2016, burglars stole over $1,000 worth of items from my husband’s truck sitting in the driveway,” Locklear said.

“We just hope everyone will be on the lookout for this man and his vehicle. Keep your car doors locked and don’t leave valuables in vehicles,” Locklear warned.

Locklear described the suspect as a dark-skinned, tall, thin male, with short dark hair, a mustache and goatee, wearing jeans and a light colored hoodie.
