St. Cloud Police Informs Public Of ADT Home Security Impersonator

Facebook Twitter

10/01/2014 - 5:10 PM

St. Cloud police officers want the public to be aware of an ADT Home Security impersonator who visited a home in the area.

Sergeant Jason Burke says officers responded to a complaint at the 1400 block of 25th Street Southeast Tuesday morning after a white man showed up saying he was with ADT.

Burke adds the man, who appeared to be in his late 20’s or 30’s, claimed he was at the home to update security passwords and change the digital connection to cellular so it could be accessed from the homeowners phone. The man insisted that the update is paid for by the company and does not need to be paid by the customer.

The homeowner then called ADT and found that there was no scheduled appointment at that time.

The police department wants St. Cloud citizens to be conscious of this incident and reminds everyone to use caution when dealing with unsolicited service calls.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A man and two women are charged with kidnapping after a traffic stop in Sauk Centre.

The St. Cloud Times reports the victim was in the back seat when a police officer stopped the vehicle early Friday because it had a taillight out. He told police he'd been beaten with a baseball bat and kidnapped because the suspects thought he was a snitch. He also told police they were taking him to Claremont to kill him.

The victim said he'd gone to one female suspect's apartment to buy marijuana. He said he was forced to strip while she and the male suspect looked for a recording device and beat him.

The complaint says the other female suspect admitted using amphetamine and told a story consistent with the victim's report.
