Police Investigating a Scam Alert in Montgomery County
Reading the details of this story left me making a "Note to Self:" Don't keep jar of money in eye site. I would actually suggest maybe not keeping a jar of money at all, really. A safe full of money? Sure. Leaves people less able to run away with it, unless they are Wyle E. Coyote.
Wednesday around 2pm in Amsterdam a burglary occurred. The victim describes the man as clean-cut white male somewhere between 30 and 45 years of age. He was driving a white 4-door sedan when he pulled up and was wearing an electricians uniform.
The suspect had informed the homeowner that he would be cutting off their power and could bring them a generator with a $50 deposit. The homeowner obliged, but the suspect turned down a slightly ripped $50 bill. When the homeowner went to find another, the suspect allegedly spotted a jar of money on the kitchen table, entered the home, grabbed it and vanished.
The concern is that this man may attempt something similar to other local residents, so beware!
