Beware of Ruse Burglaries

Every spring we hear of the ruse burglaries in Lake County.  This is just a reminder to be on guard for this.

The burglars will sometimes pose as traveling handymen or utility company workers (phone company, water company, county assessor etc.). The subjects will attempt to gain entry from a homeowner through some sort of ruse (Ex: a water pipe is broken down the street and they need access to the basement), and while the homeowner is distracted, their accomplices are committing a burglary. They also drive the area looking for people working in their yards and subjects will enter your house through an unlocked door while the homeowner is unaware outside. Working in groups of two (2) or three (3), the ruses have included a woman and child who approach a homeowner and ask if the child can use the bathroom. The unsuspecting homeowner allows the child to use the bathroom and the woman will distract the homeowner while someone else enters the home and commits a burglary. 

The Fremont Township Highway and Assessor’s employees all have ID’s, and unless there is an emergency do not work on weekends.

Is the Census Form I Received A Scam?
Our office has received calls regarding a census survey residents have received called the American Community Survey.  After looking into it, we have found this is legitimate. Click here for more information
Why is the ACS mandatory?  Response to the survey is mandatory because the American Community Survey is part of the decennial census, replacing the "long form" that previously was sent to a percentage of households once every 10 years. Learn more
