31-year-old Cole Randall Ickes was caught on a camera in the early morning of Friday, January 20, 2023, peeking into the window of a Fort Bragg home located on the 1500 block of Oak Street. Video footage shows him proceeding to attempt entry through the front door that proved locked.
After the homeowner alerted law enforcement, Fort Bragg Police would locate him just two blocks west and arrest him for peeking into inhabited buildings and loitering on private property.
Ariana Lisset, a resident of the home, told us about the incident. A Ring Camera alerted her and her family of someone moving outside their home. They watched as the camera captured Ickes peering into a “small crack in the curtains that directly shows the living room where we had dim lights on.” She said that no one was in the living room at the time, but “we were indeed home.”
The footage then shows Ickes move to another window looking into the kitchen. After seeing no one, Ickes “tried the knob and knocked.”
Lisset does not know what his intent was, but called the police right away and thanked the Fort Bragg Police Department for their quick response.
In the wake of the incident, Lisset wants her community to remember to “Be vigilant!” and “Lock your doors and windows.”
