After an incident at a city residence on Monday, Egg Harbor City Police are warning of men attempting to gain entry to homes by posing as utility workers.

Here is a posting from police about the incident and the precautions you should take before allowing anyone to enter your home


This morning two (2) male subjects posing as utility workers approached a resident and requested to check his/her utilities. While inside the residence, one of the subjects distracted the resident as the other rummaged through the house. Fortunately, it appears that nothing was taken, however, we encourage everyone to be cautious whenever anyone requests to enter your home.

If you encounter someone posing as a utility worker, please call 911 so we can verify if they are legitimately employed by a utility company. If you have any further questions or concerns please contact the Egg Harbor City Police Department at (609) 965-2901.
