SUSPICIOUS_ACTIVITY: 3-21-18 Alpine Ca. Yesterday I had two black gals come to the door selling cleaning products. They were funny and bubbly and cracked a lot of jokes and told me how they were working hard to make a better way for their life. I bought, with cash, one bottle of product. Later, talking to my friend, she had a black man and woman show up at her house. And another friend of mine said she had two gals show up. We all live in Alpine but in different neighborhoods. Today, I found out that two of the men were stopped and found to have criminal backgrounds. I am not completely clear on how that information was obtained. Apparently, this group of people are from Oklahoma and they hit Alpine pretty hard. Their intent is to case out our homes, watch when we leave, and then break in. They grab what they can and keep moving so they cannot be caught. I know this isn’t the first time we’ve had this kind of scam run in our town but we need to be extra vigilant.
