LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Lakewood police said they suspect a man of stealing multiple items from open houses over the weekend.

The Lakewood Police Department obtained a picture of the suspect on Saturday from front door and surveillance cameras. Police said they believe he took "several items" from two open houses he visited. One was along the 15000 block of W. Iliff Avenue and the other was along the 15000 block of W. Warren Drive.

Police said he walked calmly throughout the houses while realtors were present. He introduced himself as Thomas Ellington, but police said that appears to be a false name.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s. He was wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt with the Patagonia logo on the back. Police said he was driving a silver SUV.

If you have any information on these incidents, call Lakewood Det. Byl at 303-987-7261.
