Crime Alert: Watch for Home Alarm System Scam
Manchester police say a homeowner received a call from person posing as an alarm company representative, but the caller was seeking personal information.
The following information was supplied by the Manchester Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction where an arrest was made.
Residents should be on alert after a Manchester resident reported a suspicious solicitation phone call.
According to police, the resident who lives in the 700 block of Le Manns Drive received a call on Oct. 3 from someone trying to sell him an alarm system. The resident said the caller asked him a lot of questions trying to get personal information.
