[April 25, 2007]
On April 18 and 19, the Lincoln Police Department
responded to the 600 block of Seventh Street and the 100 block of
Feldman Drive to investigate three reports of residential
burglary. The suspects entered the homes of the victims by posing as
door-to-door magazine salesmen. While inside the residences, and
unknowingly at the time, the suspects stole checks and credit cards
from the victims.
The suspects are described as two young white males, clean-cut and
driving a silver car. The suspects were not registered with the city of
Lincoln to sell door-to-door. Anyone with similar incidents should
contact the Lincoln Police Department.
In the future, if any resident of Lincoln is approached at their
residence by anyone selling merchandise, the resident should ask to see
proof of registration with the city of Lincoln. If the person
selling is not registered with the city of Lincoln or cannot provide
proof, please immediately contact the Lincoln Police Department.
Anyone with any information concerning any crime in the Lincoln and
Logan County area is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 217-732-3000 or
online. Your information will be kept
confidential and you may remain anonymous.
