Blieskastel (ots) - On the morning of September 15.09.2020, 09, between 00:11 a.m. and 00:XNUMX a.m., two men were out and about in Blieskastel-Blickweiler, posing as professional scissors and knife grinders. The men offered their services to residents at the front door. In at least one case, the alleged craftsmen were hired to sharpen knives. It was only after the client had paid a three-digit amount in cash and the perpetrators had already left that the client found that the knives were duller than before.

Witnesses who made suspicious observations during the period of the crime or other victims are asked to report to the Homburg police (Tel .: 06841/1060).

The police expressly warn of dubious door-to-door sales, as these are not infrequently trickery.

Police tips:
- Only allow craftsmen into your home who do themselves
ordered or announced by the property management
- Never buy or sign anything on the doorstep. The
offered items (e.g. carpets, jewelry, cutlery) or
Craftsman services are mostly of little value or even
- Don't let strangers into your apartment. Order it
Unknown again at a later date if a
Person of trust is present.
