The Tallahassee Police Department is investigating two incidents from May 9, involving two men claiming to be law enforcement officers as an attempt to steal, said Off. Susan Newhouse, TPD spokesman.
The first incident happened around noon, on 3100 block of Notre Dame Street. A man wearing a suit approached the resident while they were unpacking groceries from the their vehicle and asked to help, according to the report.
While the two were inside, another man came in saying he was the partner to the suited man, and they were on “official law enforcement business,” according to the report. The two men claiming to be officers took items from the home and left.
The second incident happened on Volusia Street around 1 p.m.
In this situation two men pulled up the residents home and approached the resident claiming to be investigators. They demanded money and threatened to issue a warrant for arrest if the resident did not do as they asked, according to the report.
Newhouse said, residents should not let anyone in their homes unless they know who they are even if they say they are with law enforcement. They should also be willing to show proof of their identity or be dressed in a clearly distinguishable uniform.
