Police Say Men Tried To Scam Nanticoke Residents

NANTICOKE — A man claiming to be from the water company coaxed his way into a home Tuesday in Luzerne County.

The victim told police the man said he was there to check pipes in the basement of the home on River Street in Nanticoke.

He tried to get money from the woman, but she said she didn’t have any and he left.

A neighbor told officers the alleged worker was driving an older pickup truck with no markings. She also reported seeing a second man walk into the home.
