LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– A Maryland real estate agent has been arrested and charged with burglary after an Arlington homeowner allegedly caught him stealing from a house for sale on the 4100 block of N. 11th Street.

Arlington County Police say the victim discovered several items of women’s clothing were missing from a bedroom. The video from motion-activated cameras placed in the home showed the realtor riffling through drawers and closets and ultimately pocketing several items of clothing.

Sixty-year-old Stephen Brumme, of Silver Spring, has been released on bail but has also had his real estate license suspended.
