I hate thieves. And I really hate it when they get away with it. So just imagine how much I'm hating this guy...An "all call' went out to area Realtors this morning alerting them to a man calling himself Dan or Stan Tucker. He allegedly is using agents to gain access to homes where he attempts to divert the agent in order to steal prescription drugs from the master bedroom and bathroom areas. He was described as a white male driving a small black Mercedes with USA on the license plate. After Realtor Connie Weaver alerted agents with this announcement, Realtors started coming out of the woodwork. All describe the same man, though he uses different stories and sometimes wears a toupee. One of the agents that he targeted recently is a friend of mine. As it turns out, Stan Tucker may have been stealing from Realtors (both their time and their money) and from innocent people who's homes are for sale for about 10 years (that we know of). He was exposed on a Channel 11 story in February 2007 after allegedly ripping off many people. They aired his photo and even footage of him being confronted on his porch. They reported "Tucker has been convicted of theft twice -- once in 1998 for stealing from a Plano Tom Thumb and again in 2005 for stealing from a house for sale." I remember hearing about this guy a couple of years ago. Being stunned that he was still using the same mode of operation, it got me digging a little. A Realtor Safety Alert was sent out by Greater Lewisville Association of Realtors in June 2006. It describes him as "50 yrs, 5'11, 175 lbs, sandy haired, very freckled, says name is Stan Tucker". At that time he was driving a grey Expedition with an OSU decorative plate and a back plate personalized with USA. He was also described in a December 2006 blog warning as "man goes by the name Stan Tucker and is supposedly a cash buyer who drives a white Ford 4-door truck". This past summer he apparently targeted agents in the Rockwall area.
Imagine my shock when I uncovered this photos on the internet.
Here he is chatting it up at a Republican fundraiser with our local Rep. Dan Branch (a nice guy who wouldn't want to be associated with this criminal).Apparently he still lives and 'works' in and around the Park Cities. But his 'work' takes him north all the way to Oklahoma. His act changes from a "Park Cities father" to an architect to a 'Hollywood' type. Another agent said it best: "We need to stop allowing this guy to victimize people." Anyone out there with any suggestions on how to catch this thief? [where: 75230]
