Village of Menomonee Falls — The Menomonee Falls Police Department is warning residents to be careful about who they let into their homes.
Around 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12, a man got into a residence in the southern area of Menomonee Falls after he told the homeowner he was an assessor for the village. Police have determined the unknown man was actually an impostor.
"The alleged assessor appeared to take notes as the homeowner escorted him through the house," said Captain Jeff Knop of the Menomonee Falls Police Department. "Police were called after the homeowner further considered the circumstances and felt it was suspicious."
The suspect was described as a white male in his mid 30s with brown hair who was clean-shaven and wearing a brown bomber-style jacket with dark pants. While the man had an identification badge, it did not match those issued by the village. The man was seen driving a late model black Nissan Rogue or Murano four-door car with no front license plate.
Nothing was stolen from the residence, but police are asking community members who may have seen this man, or have more information about the incident to contact the police department at 262-532-8700.
Police issued reminders to residents so this incident does not happen to anyone else: Do not open the door to anyone you don't recognize, and ask to see a photo I.D. through a window; legitimate employees will comply with your request.
