A Woman Says He Broke Into Her Home, Did Something Very Creepy, Then Left (Also…Why He Might Look Familiar To You)

Denver police received some unsuspecting help in their efforts to catch an intruder — from the suspect himself.

According to KCNC-TV, a man walked into a home through the back door about 9:20 p.m. on Jan. 29, took a selfie of himself on the woman’s phone, then left the residence without taking a single thing.

Now, authorities are using the picture of the man — who bears an uncanny resemblance to “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White — to ask the public for help locating him.

“[H]e looks familiar to me, everybody else says they didn’t see him but he looks familiar to me, I know I’ve seen him before,”  neighbor Richard Gardner told KCNC-TV.

“He doesn’t have glasses when you normally see him walking down the street,” he added. “Maybe they’re a disguise. I don’t know.”

The victim’s husband said that was the only picture the suspect appeared to take of himself. According to KCNC-TV, the woman didn’t even know the man had been inside her home until she discovered the photo the next day.
