The wave of crime that hit San Carlos a few months back is continuing, and the most recent scam has caused the San Carlos Police Department to issue a new alert about suspicious solicitors who may be targeting the elderly with a scam. Please be on the look-out for the vehicles described below as they have been targeting San Carlos.
These individuals are going door-to-door selling a service to seal driveways. Once they get an interested prospect, the solicitors work their way into the home to steal money. Or they accompany the elderly victim to their bank to withdraw cash for them.
Their vehicle descriptions are:
— 2001 white Chevy King Cab pulling a trailer with a yellow tank inside. The tank presumably holds some type of sealing material..
— 1998-2000 Chevy King Cab pulling a trailer with a black tank inside. Again, the tank has some type of sealing compound.
Please pass along this information to your neighbors and report any suspicious activity to the San Carlos Police Department at (650) 802-4321.
