INGHAM COUNTY, MI (WILX) - A Lansing man is behind bars after allegedly pretending to be a cable repair man and stealing from a home.

Ingham County Sheriff's deputies say they responded to a home in Aurelius Township in March for a report of a theft.

The suspect pretended to fix their cable while he allegedly stole property from them.

The same thing happened at a home in Leslie Township in April.

33-year-old Kevin Roy Burke was arrested and arraigned Friday.

He has been charged with larceny in a building, false impersonation of a public utility worker, both of which are felonies, and defraud by false pretenses which is a misdemeanor.

His bond was set at $10,000 and his next court date is August 1 at the 55th District Court in Mason.
