Fall River Police are warning city residents of suspicious activity.
The Fall River Police is issuing an alert to members of our community who live in the vicinity of Elsbree and Langley Streets. It has been reported that a suspicious tan colored van has been seen in the area with two Hispanic males. The males look to be in their mid to late 30s and approximately 5’8″ tall, thin build. These males are using a ruse to attempt to distract residents while another male enters the home to steal items.
One male in an incident walked in the backyard of a residence and was confronted. The male had a heavy Hispanic accent and began explaining he worked for a tree removal company. This male was communicating with the other male in the truck via a two-way radio. This male then lead the victims to the farthest point away from their home allowing the second male to enter the home and steal thousands of dollars of goods. The victims essentially realized that the male’s story was not making sense and returned to the home only to find they had fell victim to breaking and entering as well as a larceny of numerous belongings.
Fall River Police is asking if you see suspicious activity similar to this to please report it immediately. If you ever have a question about door to door solicitors or feel behavior is suspicious, please do not hesitate to contact FRPD at 508-676-8511.
