A neighborhood patrol officer is warning residents about sneaky thieves prowling around the Fairmount neighborhood.

Joel Stary sent us this warning:


“A few months back we discussed a pair of individuals that were approaching homes and while one of the individuals spoke with the homeowner at the front door the other would attempt to make entry at another point in the hopes of stealing property. We have new information that may be related to these individuals and a new game they are using. This time they both ask the homeowner to allow them to clean the home and steal items while they are cleaning. This scenario occurred recently in the Fairmount neighborhood when a resident did allow the pair to come in and clean and later found items missing from the home.”

The suspects were seen driving what was described as a white Chevrolet Avalanche, and are described as follows:

Hispanic male possibly using the name “Mike” — about 5 foot 7 inches and 160 pounds, and 30 to 40 years old.

Hispanic female — about 5 feet 5 inches and 150 pounds, and 30 to 40 years old.

If approached by this pair, call 911. (If possible get a license plate of the vehicle they are occupying.)
