SCAM ALERT: People claiming to be from the Water Department. Getting access to homes and stealing.

12:15PM: Officers were dispatched to a residence on Henry Street for reports of a past larceny. The reporting party recounted the suspicious incident to officers which occurred at 1pm on January 30th. The woman reported that a man knocked on her door claiming to be a Water Department employee who was there to check the water for lead. The reporting party  remembered that he showed her some sort of ID badge on a blue lanyard. Upon entering the house the suspect made the reporting party sit turned away from the rest of the apartment and watch the water for discoloration. Because her back was to the rest of the apartment, she believes it is possible there was more than one man in her home at the time. The man never returned after he went to his truck to get some paperwork. Suspicious, the reporting party asked her neighbor to phone the water company and they told him they had not sent any representatives. After this, the reporting party checked around her house and noticed several things out of place including some cash from her wallet.

10:28AM: Officers responded to reports of larceny on University Road. The reporting party stated that he received a notification that his package had been delivered at 7:41pm. The notification included a photo of the package on the porch. The reporting party went to retrieve the package around 11pm and realized it was missing. This case is under investigation.
