SUFFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Officers from Suffield are urging residents to stay on alert for home delivery scams after a man showed up at a residence on Mapleton Avenue Friday.
At about 7 p.m., police received a call from a resident that a heavy-set white male, who she did not know, knocked on her front door and stated that he had a “special delivery.” The resident told the man that she did not order anything and to leave it on the porch, according to police.
The man replied back that he could not leave his delivery at the door because it was cash on delivery. The resident did not open the door and the man left in a dark colored car.
Suffield police surveyed the area and did not find the car. Officers ask residents to remain vigilant when dealing with potential scams and if anything seems suspicious to call the police at (860) 668-3870.
