Sugar Land residents should avoid opening their doors for strangers and never allow them access into their homes.
Useful tips to help prevent similar crimes:
- Never open the door for strangers; however, it’s important to acknowledge people knocking on the door to prevent thieves from forcing their way into a home they believe is empty.
- There’s never a reason for work crews to enter a house.
- To ensure the validity of workers in the area, call Sugar Land’s non-emergency number at 281-275-2020.
- Immediately report any suspicious activity in the area, including strangers or vehicles that seem out of place. Many crimes are prevented by alert citizens.
