Local police are investigating a burglary scam involving someone posing as a water utility worker. While pretending to check the pipes, the bogus worker was able to gain entry to a Ross home and steal jewelry. Similar incidents have been reported in Tiburon, Strawberry, and Greenbrae.
Please be vigilant when allowing any utility worker into your home. Very rarely will we need to access your home without an appointment. To confirm someone is indeed an MMWD employee:
- Look for MMWD's logo on the person's vehicle, uniform, and/or safety vest.
- Ask to see identification. All MMWD employees carry a photo ID badge.
- If you're still uncertain, call our Operations Center at 415-945-1500 to verify the person's identity.
If you encounter an individual impersonating an MMWD employee, please call 911.
