Police are looking for a man who they believe burglarized several low-income senior housing units in Glendale.
A resident of Casa de la Paloma on the 100 block of South Kenwood Street allowed the man to enter at about 6 a.m. Dec. 10 through a back door because he appeared to be a resident, according to Glendale police.
“He kind of looked like he fit in,” Glendale Police Det. Robert William said.
Once the man entered the housing facility, police said, he walked the halls and checked for unlocked doors, entering several unlocked apartments and stole purses and wallets, police said.
He remained in the housing facility for about an hour before fleeing through the main entrance, William said.
Later that morning, a security guard found several empty wallets and purses in a staircase and reported the thefts to police.
But by the time police were notified, several hours had passed and the man had left the area.
