He was then seen on the video leaving in what appeared to be a black four-door BMW.

The same man hit another residence in the south end of the city on Potomac Lane on Dec. 6, according to police.

In that case, the thief stole an envelope containing a Bank of America credit card and made several charges on it, according to Lt. Keith Ferrin.

A few days later, Ferrin said, a second man hit the same home stealing a package containing a purse.

In the two thefts at the Potomac home, police believe both men might have followed a UPS truck to the house.
