Black man who ‘disguised himself with life-like white man mask complete with fake hair to commit burglaries’ is busted

POLICE have arrested a Black man who used a life-like mask to disguise himself as a white man to commit a number of home break-ins in California.

Los Angeles police arrested Rockim Prowell after linking to him to at least 30 burglaries committed in the county between April 20 and July 20, 2020.

He is currently charged with two counts of each burglary, grand theft, and one county of vandalism, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Authorities were able to find Prowell in two burglaries through surveillance video, releasing images of the suspect wearing a realistic masks and glasses.

Prowell stole flat-screen TVs in both burglaries, with police finally noticing he always kept his mouth open due to the mask in both surveillance videos.

Beverly Hills police officers later arrested Prowell, 30, on May 2 during a routine traffic stop when they found the face mask and other items that connected him to the thefts in the car.

The car's license plates were also stolen, police said.

When a search warrant was executed on his home, police found a number of stolen items they are still working on connecting him with.

Investigators are also looking on connecting Prowell to more higher-scale burglaries in the affluent neighborhood of Newport Beach in Orange County.

Prowell is next scheduled to appear in court on May 25.
