Raleigh Police Arrest 'Polite Bandit'

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — The man Raleigh police call the "polite bandit" is now minding his manners behind bars.

Curtis Sangster, 24, was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with four counts of felonious breaking and entering, two count of felonious larceny, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of attempted first-degree burglary.

Police say the charges stem from break-ins on Wolktech Lane and Colby Drive in south Raleigh.

Police say Sangster entered homes, and if caught, would explain he had gotten there by mistake while looking for another address.

There may be more cases and police are encouraging victims who have not called them to do so immediately.
