OPP WARNING RESIDENTS OF A SOPHISTICATED THIEF
4/10/2018 4:59:25 PM
OPP are asking residents to be vigilant, following a number of thefts from homes in the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Officials say that a lone man is going to homes, primarily those with elderly residents, and telling them he is there to pave the driveway or to meet someone for tech sale of a product.
They say when the victim tells them they are the wrong address, the suspect will ask a favour, such as use their phone or washroom to gain access to the home, and once inside, steal cash, purses, or other products before the resident realizes they have been victimized.
Police are asking the public to not only be aware, but also to report any suspicious activities, people or vehicles.
