GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Police Department is asking residents to be on the lookout for scammers posing as water department employees.
The P.D. has received two separate complaints about unknown men posing as water department workers looking to get into their homes. The two incidents took place at homes in the 1400 blocks of Day Street and Farlin Avenue on the city's east side.
Green Bay police spoke with Water Department personnel who said that their employees will be dressed in blue uniform pants (no blue jeans) and a dark blue top with their department logo on it. They also said that they normally schedule all of their appointments but have some unplanned stops but those are for properties they’ve sent out letters to but haven’t received a response from.
One of the suspects is described as a white man, about 50-years-old, wearing green Army style clothing and gave the name of “Danny O’Brien”. The other suspect stood outside as a look out and there is no description available.
Authorities are advising the public that if they are ever unsure of the identity of someone at their door and they are concerned about the person, to not hesitate and call police. Green Bay police say they would rather they call us and let us investigate the problem. If you have any information regarding these incidents, please contact the Green Bay Police department at 448-3200.
