The subject is described as a white male adult, between 25 and 35 years of age, 5 foot 10 inches with a medium build. He is driving a late 1990's to early 2000's silver BMW Z3 convertible with a black top and stock wheels. The subject was seen in the area looking in cars by several residents, but no call was made to the police.

"We really need for people to trust their instincts," West Linn Police Chief Terry Timeus said. "If you see someone being suspicious or lurking in your neighborhood please call us. Do not try and reason your suspicion away."

According to police, this subject is "undoubtedly" involved in other crimes in the metro area. If you recognize this subject or know who he is, call the West Linn Police Department at 503-655-6214 or email Sgt. Mike Francis at mfrancis@westlinnoregon.gov.
