Crime Alert: A neighbor reports that yesterday when she got home- she saw a man selling strawberries door to door. When she heard her doorbell ring, she didn’t answer the bell because she didn’t want to buy strawberries. The bell kept ringing & ringing, so she looked out the window to verify who it was… and right then the guy started jiggling her door knob. Luckily her door was locked! Thanks for the report. Neighborhood Watch: Keep alert and watch out for your neighbors too.
