EMC Imposter tries to get inside home

May 10, 2006

Worth County - A warning about a man trying to get inside of homes by posing as an EMC employee.

Wednesday morning, a Worth County woman says a man came to her Pebble Lane home and said he was sent there by Mitchell EMC to "check the wiring inside her home".

He was not wearing a uniform, and he was not in a marked truck. The homeowner asked for ID, and then went to call Mitchell EMC. At that point, the man got in his truck and took off.

He's a white man with short brown hair, a medium build, and is about six feet tall.

Mitchell EMC employees will always provide proof of identification when asked, wear uniforms, and drive trucks with emblems.

If you doubt their identity, call Mitchell EMC at 336-5221 or call the police.
