WINDSOR, Conn. (WTNH) — Residents in Windsor are being warned of suspected impostors that are posing as water company employees in order to enter residential homes.
The Metropolitan District Commision (MDC) has been warning their customers about break-ins in several towns in their territory. The MDC is urging customers to remain secure while addressing anyone that comes to their door.
An incident occurred on Wednesday, in which a male suspect tried to gain access to a home in Windsor. The impostor told the resident that he needed to check the water pressure, and would return the following day to check the water again. No further details were released.
The MDC emphasizes that residents ask any MDC employee for a photo identification badge, and follow the policy, “No Identification – No Entry”. Concerned homeowners are also welcome to call the MDC Command Center at 860-278-7850 ext. 3600 to verify that the employee that is present at the resident’s home is on official business.
