READ MORE:

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County Sheriff's detectives are asking the public, particularly women who are in real estate, to be cautious of a man claiming to be a high ranking VP with the Hanes Corporation and wanting to relocate to our area.

Investigators say the man, who has used the names "Eric Mullins," "Steven Mullins" "Alex Mullins" and possibly "Steven Kincaid," has reportedly insisted to be shown property by female real estate agents in both Brunswick and Horry counties. While on site with the agents, they say he has exhibited odd and inappropriate behavior.

"Mullins" is described as a white male, about 6'4" tall with a paunchy build and thinning black hair. He is also known to wear gold-rimmed glasses. His last known vehicle was a white SUV with Georgia license plates.

Detectives are asking women in the real estate profession to use extreme caution and show properties in pairs if possible. They advise that if the situation does not "feel right," it probably is not and to call 911.

Anyone with any additional related information should contact Det. Ronald Clarke at (910) 386-7080.
