Police Warn Community About Fake Utility Worker


HAZLETON — Hazleton Police are letting the public know about a scam.

Authorities said someone posing as a utility worker talked his way into a home on South Manhattan Court on Tuesday.  Officers said the man took a purse and some house keys.

There was a similar scam in Wilkes Barre earlier in August.

Hazleton police want to remind citizens not let anyone in your home without a valid form of identification.
