Police said the incident happened around 11 a.m. Monday.

The homeowner said she was upstairs at the time and heard the garage door make a noise. When she went downstairs, she said she saw her daughter was still sleeping and there weren't any visible cars in the parking area.

When the man started backing out, she saw a vehicle pull out of the driveway. She didn't realize her purse was missing until the evening, at which point the family checked the video, according to police.

Anyone who recognizes the man or has any information about the incident is asked to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office at 734-973-7711 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
