SIERRA VISTA - A warning today from the Sierra Vista Police Department about a burglar posing as a maintenance worker.
The man apparently is offering to do various types of services at local apartment complexes. After gaining access to an apartment, the person appeared to be working; but after the person leaves, residents noticed missing personal items.
Sierra Vista Police are advising apartment complex residents that management must provide 48 hours notice prior to any type of maintenance inside an apartment. If unaware of a scheduled maintenance, it is recommended to call management before allowing access to anyone claiming to be with maintenance that shows up without prior notice. If you encounter this situation and do not believe the person is from maintenance, please call the Sierra Vista Police Department at 452-7500.
