Police: Thief with prosthetic arm targets homes in neighborhood

- Atlanta Police are searching for a man they believe is a person of interest in at least two thefts in an Atlanta neighborhood.

"We have him on surveillance footage," Sergeant Warren Pickard said. "Now we just need to identify him."

Pickard told FOX 5 News within the last week, two homes have been targeted.

"A package was stolen and a surveillance camera was taken too," Pickard said.

Dailey Dewling is one of the two victims. Dewling said she was away for the Easter holiday when one of her shipments was stolen from her front door step.

"Everything is weird about this story..." Dewling said. "The man is on a bike. He has a prosthetic arm and a hook in place of his hand."

Dewling told FOX 5, she typically feels safe, but now is on edge.

"You ask yourself if the man with the hook is going to come back? Is he going to get more bold?" Dewling said.

Atlanta Police believe there may be more victims, but they are hoping someone will be able to identify the man in the surveillance footage before anyone else becomes a victim.
