Sheriff’s Office issues scam warning
The Henry County Sheriff’s Office recently received information from a nearby county, along a four-lane highway, regarding suspicious activity.
Several residents in the nearby county reported a female subject coming to their residence to give “free quotes for interior painting.”
In one incident, the female subject entered the residence uninvited and was found by the resident and asked to leave.
Law enforcement later spoke to the subject, who had an Iowa driver’s license but was driving an out-of-state car. The subject did not have the appropriate permits to be offering door-to-door sales or work.
The sheriff’s office reminds residents of Henry County to lock their doors, be cautious with door-to-door sales persons, be alert of suspicious persons or activity in your area and report any of these situations if encountering them.
