A suspicious man was knocking on doors in Concord’s Montecito neighborhood on Monday morning, asking people about their home alarm system.
Hi Claycord, I woke up at about 8am today (on my day off) to some guy knocking on my door asking me if I had an alarm on my house and if not, if I would consider purchasing an alarm system from G.E. The way he knocked made it sound like somebody was in trouble, so that’s why I answered my door. I told him in a rough voice that I have a no soliciting sign, and he said he was worried about my safety and thought I would appreciate him asking because he had a “one time special offer”. I kept saying “no”, but he kept pushing to “come in and sit down to discuss the offer”. Finally I asked him if he had a permit from the police to sell items door-to-door, and he said he was exempt. I told him I would call the police to find out, but then he left.
He was a white man in his late-30’s with black hair and a black beard. He was driving a very beat up Toyota Corolla with no license plates. The brochure he had in his hand looked like it was printed from his home computer, and it was in black & white. He was also wearing a skull ring on his thumb.
I live in the Montecito neighborhood, near Ygnacio & Cowell Road in Concord.
I’m headed out right now to buy a security camera for my front porch.
Good idea, security cameras are great, and can often be hidden on your property so the person won’t even know they’re being videotaped.
