TUCSON (KVOA) - Tucson Water is warning its customers after individuals reportedly attempted to enter homes identifying themselves as employees.
The company said these individuals showed up to homes unannounced, showing a badge asking to come inside to collect water samples.
A resident, who allowed the individual inside the home, later discovered personal items were missing.
Tucson Water says incidents have been reported in the areas of Sunrise Drive and Swan Road, and Speedway Boulevard and Camino Seco.
