Steven Breed is Apparently Breeding Open House Trouble, Again

Published January 12, 2012 by Candy Evans

Remember Steven Breed? The Open House jewel thief may be scouting open houses with sticky fingers again. Plano police are warning all North Texas real estate agents that Breed, who is out of the slammer, may be back to his old tricks. He is suspected of stealing personal belongings from homes. For the last two years, agents have reported things missing from open houses from Frisco to Preston Hollow after Breed pops in. He was arrested last summer, accused of stealing jewelry while a real estate agent showed him a home.

Dallas area Realtor Jona Thomas told NBC she is certain Breed made an appearance at her open house in east Richardson on Sunday, posing as an interested home buyer. And he is said to have visited six homes over the weekend, including some in Preston Hollow. Agents say Breed is a bit slimmer now than his mug shot. Guess that’s what jail does to you.
