Police in Milpitas are warning residents of a utility scam that has helped thieves gain access to homes. The thieves will show up at the front door claiming to be employees of PG&E, a cable company, water company or other utility, police said. After being let into the home, one person pretends to perform a utility check while a second person looks for items to steal, according to police.
Police are advising residents to ask anyone claiming to be a utility worker for identification or a work order before allowing them inside. Residents are also advised not to answer the door if no service is scheduled. Any suspicious activity should be reported immediately, police said.
