Suspicious subject selling home alarm systems

Last week Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 8:00 p.m., a man posing as an employee of an alarm security company had approached several homeowners, inquiring about their current home security systems and/or their interest in a obtaining a home security system. A vehicle was not seen by the caller. The subject walked up the driveway.

The subject is described as a white male, mid-late 30s, average build, five feet 10 inches up to six feet tall, with short brown hair and sideburns. He was carrying a file-type case, and had no brochures or business cards from the security company he was stating he represented.

The homeowner had their garage door open and several lights on at the house. The alarm company was contacted and stated that they do not send sales representatives out into the community to solicit their service.

If someone comes to your house soliciting an alarm system, please contact the Rockford Police Department at (616) 866-9557.
