UPDATE: The Mobile County Sheriff's Office identified the man as Casey Wheeler. He has not been charged with a crime, but deputies want to speak with him. 

SEMMES, Ala. (WALA) - A scary situation in a Semmes neighborhood as neighbors watched a man look into people's windows.

Neighbors are concerned because they have no idea what his plans were.

The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office released the video because deputies want to ask him what he was thinking.

It started with a single push of the doorbell, but MCSO said it may have gone beyond that.

Residents spot peeper in Semmes neighborhood

The Mobile County Sheriff's Office wants to talk to this man. Neighbors say they saw him look into people's windows.

“People are brave nowadays to come up all the way to your window,” said a woman who lives nearby, who did not want to be identified.

MCSO said the video was taken last Thursday near Downing Street and Winston Drive in Semmes.

When deputies got to the neighborhood and started investigating, others started coming forward.

“I'm just curious on why he was looking through the windows, what he was looking for. If he knew the people that he was looking at their houses or if he was just casing them, wanting to know if they have any valuables or anything like that,” one neighbor said.

MCSO released a picture of the truck they believe the person may have been driving.

Truck linked to man

MCSO released a picture of the truck they believe the person may have been driving. 

A nearby neighbor who did not want to go on camera said she thinks she has seen the truck before driving slowly down Winston Drive.

The truck is a red 2005 Toyota Tundra truck. MCSO was not able to get a license plate number.

Neighbors said this is just another reason to always pay attention to your surroundings.

“I'm going to be more aware now, just watching our cameras,” one neighbor said. “It didn't pick up anything on our end, I guess that's good he wasn't at our house.”

MCSO said they want to talk with that man.

If you know who he is, you are asked to give them a call.
