HR Strange But True!
February 09, 2006

You never know when the next person you meet might be working for the CIA. Or a serial burglar working for the CIA. Or even a serial burglar with a penchant for women's undergarments working for the CIA.

That's who Lori Meyer encountered when she walked into her McLean, Va., home one evening last month with her 8-month-old son, Samuel.

Arriving home at about 6:15 p.m. Jan. 24, the house was dark and Meyer, who was carrying Samuel, discovered a man inside. She said he sprinted away from her while she ran screaming out of the house.

Meyer told the Washington Post that she continued screaming to try to attract attention and that a woman in a minivan with two young boys in the back pulled over. As she was describing her situation to the driver, the burglar walked by, Meyer said.

When the man drove off, the women and children in the minivan pursued him. They followed him to a cul-de-sac, where they got his license plate number and a detailed description of his car. They called police.

Police later arrested George C. Dalmas III, 44, described as a "midlevel administrative employee" at the CIA. He is now charged with 17 burglaries in the McLean area. A search of his Falls Church, Va., home turned up a trove of cash, jewelry, antiques, license plates -- and bags filled with more than 1,000 women's undergarments.

Dalmas has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation. He is being held on $1.65 million bond.
