One of the odd things about selling your house is that, suddenly, real estate agents from all over can get inside when you’re not there, because your key is in a lockbox near the front door. If you’ve ever been paranoid about what happens when you’re not there, you may (or may not) want to watch this surveillance video posted Monday by Arlington police and fully reported by ARLNow.com. Because it’s pretty creepy.
Arlington police later arrested Stephen Brumme, 60, of Silver Spring, and he was charged with burglary and possession of burglar’s tools (a key to the lockbox?). Police said his real estate license was immediately suspended. But the episode made police wonder: Is your house for sale? Are you missing any underwear? Or anything else, for that matter? Then call Detective Timothy Parsons at 703-228-4372. If you’re not too creeped out already.
