(La Porte County, IN) - Citizens should keep an eye out for a possible home security imposter who may have tricked his way into a Michigan City area residence.
According to La Porte County Police, the 64-year old victim was in his garage Tuesday afternoon in the 7700 block of West Happy Landing Lane when approached by a man claiming to be with a home security system provider.
After claiming he was there to check if the alarm system needed any updates, the man was allowed inside the home. The victim’s wife approached and began asking questions the now nervous looking man could not answer, police said. He was asked to leave and did so without incident. The couple later called the alarm company and learned there were no work orders for a technician to be at their home.
The suspect was described as white and wearing all dark “workman type” clothing, police said. They also said he appeared to be in his mid-20’s to early 30’s and stood about 6’0” tall with a medium build and had no facial hair or glasses.
