LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police are looking for a man who has broken into several homes in Middletown, Douglass Hills and Jeffersontown areas.

Police say the man is going into backyards and driveways and then entering the homes.

"Once inside the home, he's removing wallets, purses, watches, then taking the credit cards of the victims," said LMPD Det. Dave Dahl. "After he takes the credit cards, he'll go use them at various gas stations and department stores, and even a Walgreen's in Bullitt County."

According to police, the man they are seeking has a very distinct walk. If you have any information about the suspect, call the LMPD Crime Tip Line at 574-LMPD (5673). All calls to the Crime Tip Line are anonymous.

To protect yourself, Metro Police suggest installing motion detectors around your home, make sure you secure your items, keep your doors locked and close your garage door.
