Upon arrival, officers met with the victim, who advised she was approached by a Hispanic male. The male advised that he worked for a local water company and he was investigating a water leak. The male followed the victim into the house and checked several areas of the dwelling. After a few minutes, he left and the victim then realized she was missing some personal property.

There may have been another person involved who entered the dwelling while the homeowner was distracted but was not seen. Officers searched the area but did not locate the suspect.

Suspect: Hispanic/male/5’08”/ 220 pounds/wearing blue baseball style hat, blue shirt and tan pants.

This is the second incident in the last week with similar circumstances and suspect information.

If this person’s presence causes you to be suspicious or uncomfortable dial 911 and ask for an officer to respond.
