On August 1st, a couple in the city’s historic downtown area became victims of the scam. One thief engaged the couple in conversation while his partner roamed through the house. After the impostors left, the couple realized that some jewelry was missing and things had been searched through.
The police department urges “all citizens to be aware of such scams or similar incidents involving door-to-door solicitors”.
