Some residents of southern Hopkinsville received a “Code Red” phone call over the weekend regarding a burglar who displayed disturbing conduct.
Both incidents happened early Sunday morning, with the first coming around 2:50 at 129 Keeton Drive. Nancy Childers told police that guests at her home were sleeping when they awoke to find the suspect lying on the floor of the bedroom.
The burglar sprung to his feet and fled the home when the guest woke up, taking with him nearly 3-thousand dollars worth of jewelry and cash. A little more than an hour later at 202 Dover Place, Vicci Clodfelter looked out a window after hearing a noise and found a male meeting the same description exposing himself to her. The perpetrator got away with a 350 dollar GPS system in that incident.
Hopkinsville Police Public Information Officer Paul Ray says the Code Red call was to notify residents of the area about the activity.
Officer Ray says anyone seeing anything suspicious, especially in the Cox Mill Estates area, should contact police immediately.
Police are also urging residents to lock their homes and vehicles to keep the creeper out.
