Suspicious Circumstances

On 9/10/20 at approximately 4:30 p.m., Sparks Police responded to a residence in the 1800 blk of H St. for suspicious circumstances. The resident stated that a male subject, posing as an alarm company representative, knocked on her door and asked to come inside to check the status of her current alarm system. The subject convinced the resident to let him inside and asked for the code to the alarm system, as well as the resident's social security number and financial information. The subject left when the resident mentioned that her son would be coming to the house soon.


The Sparks Police Department encourages citizens to be aware of unscheduled visits by solicitors and service workers. Please take caution with those that enter your residence and keep personal information secured. Anyone with information please call the Sparks Police Department or Secret Witness.
