ARLINGTON, Va. -

The homeowner says he and his wife had a feeling something strange was going on inside their home while real estate agents were alone inside. It turns out, they were right.

A video taken last month at a home on N. 11th Street in the Ballston area shows real estate agent Stephen Brumme rifling through a closet and some drawers, taking women's clothing before a client came to tour the home.

The homeowners had installed cameras because there were so many people coming through their home, and they had noticed some weird things, like a razor blade in the garbage disposal.

They say they were "creeped out" when they watched the video and called police.

Brumme, 60, from Silver Spring, Md., faces charges of burglary and possession of burglarious tools.

His real estate license has been suspended.

If your home has recently been on the market and you have noticed items to be missing or suspect to have been a victim of burglary, contact the Arlington County Police Department at (703) 558-2222, or Detective Timothy Parsons at (703) 228-4172. Detective Parsons can also be reached by email at Tparsons@arlingtonva.us.
