According to WSAV in Savannah, police in one Georgia town are searching for a naked burglar. The strange crimes were initially reported on April 1st in Metter, Georgia. Metter is about an hour and a half from the Augusta area. A second round of break-ins were reported the following weekend (April 8).
A naked man has been captured on camera. He is seen on private property, going through unlocked cars. He has even entered homes in the area that were left unlocked or had “hidden” keys outside.
In the first incident, the man was seen wearing nothing but a hoodie to conceal his identity. For the second incident, believed to be the same man, he entered at least 2 homes where homeowners were present.
While the incident didn’t happen close by, it’s always a great reminder to remove valuables from your vehicle and locking your doors!
