Beware of Thief posing as a Home Buyer

He's back. The notorious thief who poses as a home buyer is back in Dallas and "working" the area. I get several calls a year from the victims of Stan Tucker because I posted information about him back in 2008.

His mode of operation is to pose as a potential home buyer. He claims to be looking for a property for his son, or himself or something like that. Currently it looks like he is targeting homes that are for sale by owner. Security is a major issue when selling a home without an agent and he is proof. Letting a stranger in your home is risky business for a homeowner.

Based on the calls and emails I've gotten, he has robbed homes from Waco to Stillwater, Oklahoma. This slippery snake is good at what he does and seems to always avoid getting caught in the act. Yesterday, I got a call from a homeowner in Lake Highlands where he did his usual routine.

He is currently driving a newer, silver pick up truck. It's the shorter style truck and the front license plate is turned up. For more information go to my past stories about him here:

Or check out this Oklahoma news report about him that even gives his phone number as 214-505-9955. If he appears at your property or you discover that he's robbed you, please contact the police.

A police department is building a case against this guy. They could use written testimony from any of his victims or any information you can supply. If you have information that would help them, please email me and I will put you in touch with the officer pursuing this.
