PRINCETON - A series of robberies in Mercer County are under investigation and the Sheriff's department is asking for help from the public.
A number of residents in Quail Valley have fallen victim to a robber who has stolen items from over a dozen locations from last Wednesday night through the following Thursday morning. Officials with the Mercer County Sheriff's Department have released video footage of the suspect and are asking the public to be on the lookout for suspicious activity of this nature. According to Deputy W.E. Rose, the thief stole anything of value from the neighborhood's out buildings, vehicles and he even broke into a home and stole from a woman while she was asleep.
"To me it's probably one of the most intrusive things you can so such as something that would be physically attacking you. That's where wet body feels safe, I don't think there's much worse than that,” said Rose.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a slender frame. Anyone with information is urged to call the Mercer County Sheriff's Department.
