Possible Stolen Phone Scam

Updated with clarified information: On Monday, July 15, one of our residents was approached at home by two individuals claiming a lost/stolen phone had pinged to that house. The resident did not have the phone, knew nothing about it, and the entire situation did not feel right. What makes it particularly suspicious is that another Northland resident a few miles away reported the exact same thing happening to them yesterday as well.

We are not sure what the true intent of these two individuals is, but the fact that the same scenario was reported by two people a few miles apart on the same day raises some flags.

If these individuals come to your door claiming to be looking for a phone, do not allow them inside your home. Call the police and let them come handle the situation.
