A woman on Old Swimming Pool Rd. reported a suspicious person at her residence on August 21.
She told officers with the Jefferson Police Department she had contact with the driver of a vehicle in her driveway on August 20. She said the male driver told her he was taking the Census and she answered his questions. She said he entered the information on his cell phone, but it didn’t have the 2020 Census marking on it.
She stated the next day when she arrived home she encountered the same vehicle coming out of her driveway and the man told her the same story. She said she told him she had already answered his questions and he needed to leave.
She stated she was concerned because several years ago her husband was the victim of a home invasion and she was afraid “they” were trying to set her up.
