[ARCHIVED] HSPD Community Awareness Advisory

Hot Springs Police Department Advisory: On two separate occasions recently a 30-50 yr. old white male wearing a yellow reflective vest and cap or visor has approached the home of an elderly resident visor posing as “utility worker” of some type. On both occasions the worker told the resident that a fiber optic line was to be buried across their back yard and asked to inspect the construction area. While the resident was distracted in the back yard with the worker a second unknown accomplice entered and burglarized the residence. Anyone suspicious of a utility worker should request to see the worker's company photo ID and if the worker cannot verify their authority with an ID the resident should immediately report the incident to 911.
