Alleged “Office Creeper” via DowntownDC Business Improvement District

We previously spoke about another alleged “office creeper”, I had no idea this was a thing, back in 2014.

A reader passes on from the Downtown BID:

“MPD has notified us that an office creeper previously known to the downtown area back in the area. The subject has changed his look as well cutting his hair and shaving his face. Recently Fairfax County Police had him involved in an office theft and credit card fraud. Unfortunately, MPD feels that it won’t be too long until he makes his way back into downtown and other parts of the city. As a precaution, please let your security staff know about this individual.

In addition, should they see him do not stop him, immediately dial 911 and allow MPD to respond so they can apprehend him.”

So if you see a dude in a plaid shirt hanging around the office cooler – beware. Also don’t leave your wallet in your desk.

    Is this the same guy who was sneaking into buildings in Crystal City late last year or are there just multiple office creepers?

    He may want to go with the less-conspicuous blue work shirt if he’s trying to pull off crimes and therefore presumably doesn’t want to draw attention to himself.

    I need to buy different shirts

    This is the same guy from Crystal City last year. Found him in our offices and chased him out. I saw him later lurking in the shop tunnels.

    Is there a link to the BID page/tweet for this announcement, or did it come via email?

    It kind of looks like Adam Sandler in the picture on the right. Are we sure this isn’t just some sort of gag? Was there a crew filming the whole thing? I mean, at this stage in his career, I wouldn’t put it past him to be ripping off Sacha Baron Cohen and filming a movie called The Office Creeper.

    I remember a different scam, a well-dressed and well-spoken guy who got into buildings and had framed art (usually familiar works) to sell at very low cost. The prints were supposedly left over from a renovation in the same building. Is anyone still working this scam?
