Scamming always a concern

Here at the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office, we recently received a report of a man who portrayed himself as a utility worker and convinced someone to let him into their house. Once inside he “checked” the home’s outlets and actually did a small repair. However, after distracting the homeowner, he took a piece of jewelry, which wasn’t noticed until after he left.

We issued an alert and although we haven’t received any additional reports about this suspect and his scam, I want to continue and emphasize the need for people to be cautious.
