DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) — The Durham Police Department issued a crime alert Wednesday after burglars took an officer’s uniform, police gear and even a puppy from his home.

The gear included a Taser, but the officer’s firearm, badge and radio were not taken, according to WTVD.

In addition to the puppy, jewelry and electronic items were also stolen.

Officials say the community should be on the lookout for someone posing as an officer.

Durham Police Department employees are required to carry city-issued photo identification, so anyone unsure about an officer’s identity should ask to see the officer’s photo identification.

You can also call 911 to verify an officer’s identity.

Anyone with information about the stolen items is asked to call Investigator J. Walsh at 919-560-4582, ext. 29248 or Crime toppers at 919-683-1200.

Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.

    Always look at the shoes of a uniformed police officer. Do the shoes match the uniform? If not, probably an impostor.
