Police hope this serves as a reminder to citizens to always report suspicious vehicles and people in your neighborhood. Watch out for your neighbors’ homes while they are away. Call and report any people soliciting door-to-door for sales or services. City ordinance requires they have a license. And don’t be afraid of being wrong, call police even for a gut feeling or a hunch.
