  • While some criminals do their best to leave a crime scene without a trace, a Philadelphia suspect gave police an investigative head start.

    Christopher Kieter allegedly stole from three institutions by posing as a fire inspector.

    The 26-year-old was granted access to the Academy of Music on Jan 3 and stole a Toshiba computer, headphones and a radio.

    The next day Kieter used his same tactics at the Independence Visitor Center where he was seen on surveillance camera taking a $2,500 handheld radio and a wireless microphone worth over $600.

    Police tied Kieter to a similar incident on Jan 8. at the Art Institute of Philadelphia which resulted in two missing laptops. Police arrested Kieter after discovering that he provided his name on a visitor’s log at the Art Institute.

    Kieter faces charges of impersonating a public official, trespassing, theft and other similar offenses. Authorities retrieved all of the stolen items during a search of Kieter’s home.
