(LaPorte, IN) - LaPorte County Police are giving a heads up about a NIPSCO scam. On Friday, police say a man pretending to work for NIPSCO went to a home in the 100 block of Longwood Drive just outside LaPorte. He told the homeowner some trees needed to be trimmed away from
power lines on the property. When they walked to the backyard to look at the trees, police say another man went inside the residence. Police did not disclose what was taken.
The suspects have yet to be identified, however one suspect is identifed as white, and the other as black. They drove off in a black vehicle with tinted windows and chrome rims. Police say homeowners should not cooperate unless prior arrangements were made with a company representative or contractor.
