A maintenance man trusted to enter apartments at a complex in Alexandria, Virginia, is accused of stealing cash from residents.
One resident at Presidential Greens said William Parker asked her to leave her apartment with her children while he worked. When she returned, $500 in rent she left on the TV was gone.
Another woman says she and her family were asleep when a maintenance man came to do a repair. She believes he opened the door and grabbed her husband's wallet, which had $500 inside.
One man said $1,400 was taken from his apartment.
Search warrants show thousands of dollars and dozens of weapons have been stolen from units at Presidential Greens.
Investigators wrote that Parker, 31, performed maintenance at all the units shortly before the burglaries.
Parker, 31, is being held without bond on charges of burglary and grand larceny in connection to one incident.
“He did have access to numerous apartments in that apartment complex so we’re certainly looking to see if he's connected to any more crimes in that area,” said Crystal Nosal of Alexandria Police.
The Northern Virginia Bureau was referred to a regional manager after going to the management office Monday to find out why Parker was kept on after multiple residents reported missing money. The bureau has not heard back from the regional manager.
