Curtis Buford, 50, told police he is a “scrapper,” and that he found all of the items “on the street.”
Those items included a Kenmore washer and dryer, a black BBQ grill, deep freezer and several other items.
The only problem was officers found a trail made from a dolly leading from the backyard of the victim’s home to Buford’s backyard.
The victim told police all of the appliances and other items were gone when she got back to her home on Wednesday. She said someone broke in through the rear window and left through the back door of the home on Vineyard Haven Place.
When officers found these items in Buford’s backyard, the also noticed the deep freezer, which still contained ice from “recently being unplugged.”
That is when police found the trail leading from the woman’s home to Buford’s backyard.
