10306479_825500670877069_1946972718073611415_nThe Levelland Police Department is warning of a new scam which has recently been occurring.

According to the Levelland Police, scammers are targeting homes with a security company sign in their front yard.  The person will approach the residence and when the homeowner answers the door, they claim to be from the security company and they need to repair the system or check the system.  In reality, their goal is to get inside the house to see what valuable items a homeowner has.  They will then come back later and break in the home and steal the valuables or in some cases will harm the homeowner and other occupants of the home and steal the valuables.

You are reminded to always be cautious and alert.  You are being asked to report any suspicious activity to the police department at 894-6164 or if it is an emergency or you feel threatened contact 911.

    Last week, a guy came to my door and talked to me about a security system. I told him I have ADT and he said theirs was much better. I told him I did not have time to talk to him now and he said he would be back the next day around the same time. I said okay, intending to not answer the door! LOL. He did not return. I will be watching out for him and let the Department know if he returns. I did not let him inside the house. I have 6 dogs who bark at anything and maybe that discouraged him if he was a scammer and thief. I am one of those people who does not let anyone in if I do not know them and nobody after dark unless they call first!!
