The Delaware County Sheriff's Office on Friday asked for the public's help in identifying a man who allegedly attempted to burglarize a home.

The incident was captured on Wednesday on a home security system's surveillance camera, according to deputies.

The alarm system for the home, located on Miller-Paul Road, was set off shortly before noon on Wednesday.

"The Sheriff's Office responded to investigate and found that someone had entered a patio through an unlocked window and attempted to pry open the door to the home," Delaware County Sheriff Walter Davis said.

According to Davis, no one was home at the time of the attempted burglary but surveillance video captured an older model, black, GMC long conversion van. The vehicle has a silver roof and a handicap sticker in the front window.

The driver was not visible in the surveillance images but the passenger was seen leaving the van. 

Both people left before they gained entry into the home and no property was stolen, Davis said.

"The van is rather unique," Davis said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Delaware County Sheriff's Office at 740-833-2800.
