Stone Mountain police said the man kicked his way into a home on Ferndale Street on Thursday morning, leaving a footprint on the door, according to the incident report.

A set of keys found nearby the home appear to tie him to past, unsolved break-ins, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Police sketches of the man show him wearing an “ATL” hat and a “newsboy” hat, and they hope someone will recognize him.
