The Taylor Police Department would like to advise residents of a utility worker scam that has occurred within the borough. One of the male individuals involved posed as a water company employee, complete with a fake identification card hanging around his neck. This male distracted the elderly female and while they were in the basement, a second burglar walked in and stole two strong boxes that had cash and valuables in them. We believe that the individuals involved are conducting surveillance on the elderly within the community and are waiting for the right opportunity to take advantage of them. The Taylor Police Department would like to remind you to be alert. Never allow subjects inside your residence or yard without proper identification. Workers for utility companies carry identification and drive marked vehicles, but remember utility workers rarely come to a residence without calling first. Please be aware that a subject who is wearing a hard hat, utility vest and identification card may not be a utility worker. If you are unsure, don't let them in and immediately call 911. The Taylor Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact the Taylor Police Department at 570-562-2210.
