HAR has been alerted to a second incident in as many weeks involving the theft or attempted theft of prescription drugs during a home tour. The most recent incident took place at a showing in the Villages of Cypress Lakes in Cypress. A female guest was caught on video removing a medication bottle from a kitchen cabinet and placing it in her purse. She drove away in a white, late model Infinity. We’re told she claimed she was supposed to meet her sister at the showing, but that her sister was caught in traffic. The guest apparently pretended to be on the phone with her sister the whole time she was in the home.
In late July, a male guest at an open house in Briargrove was caught going through the medicine cabinet in search of prescription drugs. He is described as a white male, about 6’1” in his mid- to late-30s, with a crew cut and thick beard, driving a black SUV with NY plates. A girl, about 7 or 8 years old, was with him.
Remember to always exercise caution during open houses and showings. Use the buddy system and report all suspicious activity to the police.
