Sugar Land residents should avoid opening their doors for strangers and never allow them access into their homes. Residents are reminded that City work crews wear uniforms, carry official identification, and drive marked vehicles. Contractors are also expected to be identified by official identification.
Useful tips to help prevent similar crimes:
Never open the door for strangers; however, it’s important to acknowledge people knocking on the door to prevent thieves from forcing their way into a home they believe is empty.
There’s never a reason for work crews to enter a house.
To ensure the validity of workers in the area, call Sugar Land’s non-emergency number at 281-275-2020.
Immediately report any suspicious activity in the area, including strangers or vehicles that seem out of place. Many crimes are prevented by alert citizens.
