A resident of The Falls reports suspicious activity this morning, March 16, 2012. Around 7:30am the resident heard a knock at their door. When the husband answered the door, a woman in her 20’s with dirty-blond hair was standing there. She asked for a ride to her job in Everett because she missed her bus. The husband thought that this was very odd and declined to help. After this encounter, he reported the incident to 911.
Note: It is precisely activity like this that should raise your suspicions. Assuming the worst, this could have been someone checking to see if the house was empty. 7:30am does not meet the normal time for residential burglaries (normally between 10:00am to 3:00pm or 4:00pm, but, a burglar could always want to get an early start. The residents thought it was odd that someone would knock on a stranger’s door to ask for a ride when she could have used her cell phone to call someone she knew.
