CLARKSVILLE (KFSM) – A Clarksville man was robbed by a woman he let inside his home to get a drink of water, police say.

The suspect pictured at right showed up at the man’s front door on Oct. 24 seeking a drink of water, and he let her in. After she left, he realized that the woman had taken his wallet and a bank bag, according to police.

Inside the wallet were the victim’s ID, credit cards and checks, police said.

On Monday (Oct. 27), some of the victim’s checks were used in Clarksville and Russellville.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is encouraged to call the Clarksville Police Department at 479-705-3330 or the River Valley Crimestoppers Tip Line at 78-CRIME.

      I agree. This report leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Such as: was the man mentally challenged in some way? Who on earth lets a complete stranger into his house to help themselves to a drink of water? One I’m not going to let a complete stranger into my house. Two, I’m not going to let someone I don’t know help themselves to things unescorted! Also is the car shown displaying a readable tag number? How did the woman cash a check without showing photo ID? Yes! Very suspect!

    Please don’t allow strangers into your home.
    If you are charitable, have the person walk across the street, set the water on your porch, then lock your door.

    After seeing various news story’s involving crime at Walmurt, I’m thurroughly convinced that the security cameras there are all junk. I could get a better picture of the suspect from a monkey with a hand full of crayons.

    I had “heard” that the high def cameras were good at Walmurt, but i honestly believe it’s just a ploy. Why else would they furnish such low-grade, highly pixelated, images to law enforcement?

    If you let an unknown black person into your home – THIS is what you get. I would have predicted it. Sad, but true.
