May 30, 2020 the Lower Southampton Police responded to the 600 block of Shortleaf St, just off Brownsville Road in the Trevose section of the Township for the report of a burglary. 

Investigation revealed that at approximately 1:54PM the pictured white male knocked on the front door and made contact with the elderly resident.  The male told the resident there is a problem with his roof and gutters.  The resident escorted the man through the house and into the rear yard.  The man then told the resident he needed to get something from his vehicle which was parked out front however the male re-entered the residence through the front door and began to look around the interior of the residence until he came across the wife of the homeowner who was sleeping in one of the rooms.

The man calmly re-approached the resident who was still in the rear yard.  The resident then escorted the man away from the residence.  At this time it is unknown what the man may have taken. 

A neighbor reported seeing a black Toyota Tundra with a female passenger parked in the street around this time.
