DETROIT LAKE, OR (KPTV) -

The Marion County Sheriff's Office is looking for Billie Shrader, who is a suspect in a number of burglaries in the Detroit Lake resort area.

Shrader is a transient and is described as 5'9" tall, 190 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a full beard.

Deputies linked Shrader to a burglary Oct. 28 when a homeowner found a man sleeping inside. The suspect took off but the owner was able to take a picture of him on his cell phone. Police also used belongings left behind to identify Shrader.

Investigators believe Shrader is responsible for six burglaries reported in the last week. They say he has been targeting specific homes, living in them and then stealing items before leaving.

Anyone who sees Shrader is urged to call 911.
