Several incidents involving unidentified “salesmen” and home burglaries have Newport Beach police asking residents to watch for suspicious people in their neighborhoods.
Police said a recent spate of door-to-door calls in Huntington Beach from an “ADT Alarm” salesman who had no identification or company van has put them on guard for similar incidents in Newport Beach.
Police said a Newport Beach resident recently had her home scouted by a man claiming to be a termite inspector. The man told the homeowner in the Bluffs neighborhood that he was from a termite removal company. Police said the man walked through the home, provided an invoice to the homeowner and left. He had no ID, and the invoice had no contact information or company name, police said.
