Crime Alert - door-to-door scams

Denver's Police Department reminds each resident to remain vigilant when dealing with door-to-door salespeople. While not everyone engaged in sales is plotting to burglarize your home it is imperative you keep the following in mind.

The Salida Police Department reported that they have had three cases recently in which magazine salespeople would go door to door selling subscriptions, ask to use the bathroom, and then steal items.

Colorado Springs Police Department also reported a recent case where a magazine salesperson sold a subscription to the victim and came back later entering the residence and taking a wallet.

Thank you for your time and attention to this important crime prevention notice.
