Snellville Police investigators say they’ve spoken with a window installation company which confirms a third party marketing group has been canvassing the Snellville area.
The department sent out an alert via Facebook Tuesday of a possible burglary crew posing as salesmen.
A group of young people claiming to offer estimates for window installations went door to door this week in the Brookwood Manor subdivision.
"The story they told regarding the product they were selling or their business made no sense; they had not identification; they had no brochures; they had no information," HOA president Phyllis Miller tells WSB's Sandra Parrish.
She witnessed one young man try the knob at a neighbor's house and then reach above the door as if looking for a key.
"Personally, I think they were here to check and see who was home; what houses might be empty for either burglary or robbery," says Miller.
After calling police, she asked the group to stick around to talk to officers but they quickly drove away.
The latest post on the police department’s Facebook page says Power Home Remodeling Group has cooperated completely and apologized for any alarm it may have caused. It also provided police with a list of all its employees working in the area as well as a list of employees from the third party group.
The department says the company will continue to assist in any possible way.
