Well, the wandering zombie walker burglar ( as known to us on the 300 block of Nevada St.) was finally handcuffed & arrested last Friday evening. We refer to this guy as the “walker” because he looks like a zombie. He was captured after he tried (unsuccessfully) to pick our front door lock.
The zombie walker has been opening mailboxes, looking for packages and unlocked doors on both cars and houses for months now in this area. He is a tall, thin, African American male in in late 20’s / early 30’s. He is either homeless /transient, or his modus of operation may just be to appear homeless/transient.
I was heading from my kitchen area to my living room last Friday at 7:45pm to pull the shade on my front window down when I heard a noise from my front door handle. Then I heard the sound of something hit my front porch light, coming from these crazy looking, home made devices made from what looked like gardening tools. Then I saw the shadow of an unexpected visitor on our porch.
I immediately opened my front door as he walked down my front stairs to the sidewalk. I just looked at this crazy crackhead who tells me ” I ain’t doing nothing wrong” repeatedly. My response was “well you ain’t doing nothing right either, since you are clearly up to no good!”
My partner and watched him as he was went from house to house with his tools and Hefty garbage bag. We calked 911, and the SFPD nabbed him at Putman & Crescent as he was tossing all his stuff while being chased. Once we called SFPD, they knew his description immediately and the officers had him handcuffed within 10 minutes.
I will be pressing charges for attempted burglary.
