On Wednesday, January 11, at approximately 5:00 pm, officers responded to an Allerton Road residence for a report of suspicious activity. Upon arrival, the seventynine (79) year-old homeowner advised that a male in a dark-colored Dodge Ram pickup truck approached his residence, stated that he (the man) worked for the electric company, and that he needed the homeowner and the homeowner’s wife to come outside of the residence to witness work. As the homeowner walked to the garage to meet with the man, the homeowner’s wife observed someone hiding in the front seat of the pickup truck. She yelled for her husband to obtain the man’s identification and the man replied that he left his identification in another work truck. When the homeowner called for his wife to bring him the telephone, the man entered the truck and fled. The man was described as either white or Latino, approximately 5’10”, approximately 190 pounds, and wearing a work coat, hat with no visible logos, ripped blue jeans, and sneakers. He was also carrying a clipboard. The wife was unable to provide a description of the person hiding in the truck
