ARLINGTON, Va. – The Arlington County Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division is investigating a suspect involved in a burglary and is seeking additional victims to come forward.
The latest incident occurred in a home for sale on the 4100 block of N. 11th Street in Arlington, VA. The victim discovered that several items of women’s clothing were missing from the bedroom. This prompted the victim to review motion activated web cams that had been placed in the home. The video revealed a realtor riffling through drawers and closets and ultimately pocketing several items of clothing.
The suspect, Stephen Brumme, 60, of Silver Spring, Md., was arrested and charged with burglary and possession of burglarious tools. He was released on bail, and his real estate license was immediately suspended.
