Mystery visitor

An apparent prowler walked into an E. Eighth Street house on Dec. 29, but then left without taking anything.

Video footage shows the unknown miscreant walked into the house near Kings Highway at 6:00 pm carrying a flash light and wearing gloves, but he didn’t use force to enter and didn’t steal anything from the private residence, according to police.

The thief broke into the apartment between Avenues S and P via the back door and took jewelry worth an estimated $50,000. The owner was gone between 6 and 6:30 pm, and noticed the theft upon returning home, according to police.
