Investigators with the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office are trying to identify a man observed in the Old Gallant Road area in recent days, according to Sheriff Jonathon Horton.
The man has been spotted during the past week, driving a small, dark-colored four-door sedan, probably a Kia, according to witnesses.
He’s been seen parking the car, then walking on and around people’s property in the area, according to post on the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division Facebook page.
He was seen Monday near the Carnes Chapel area of Old Gallant Road, walking away from a homeowner’s shed carrying a small air compressor. When confronted, he dropped the air compressor and ran away.
Anyone with information about the man or the vehicle is asked to contact the sheriff’s office at 256-549-2183.
