Cable Company Posers Being Sought in Emmett Township
Emmett Township Public Safety investigators are looking for two men that claimed that they worked for the cable company Monday.
Authorities responded to the 2000 block of Hollison Beach near Beadle Lake Road, after the homeowner spotted the men in the backyard. The homeowner confronted the men, who stated that they were burying a line for Comcast. The men, identified as white and around 40 and 18 years of age, then left in a light blue Chrysler sedan that was made within the last five years. More details were shared on Emmett Township Public Safety's Facebook page.
Investigators confirmed with Comcast that employees will have visible identification, identify themselves as a representative and properly display a work order. At the time of the incident, Comcast reported no employees in that area.
