The Bismarck Police Department is warning citizens to use caution when allowing strangers into your home to use the bathroom. We have received reports of a female going to real estate open houses and garage sales asking to use the bathroom. It is believed that she looks for and takes medication from the homes.
If you are planning an open house, a safety measure to consider is to remove all prescription drugs and medication from any medicine cabinets and other places where drugs and medication may be stored.
If you are having a garage sale, restrict access to your house. Lock doors and windows, and close the curtains. Don’t allow strangers to enter to try on clothes or use the restroom. If weather and space allows, close your garage door and host the sale on your driveway or lawn.
Report any suspicious activity to police immediately. For more safety tips, please visit http://bismarcknd.gov/396/Crime-Prevention-Community-Services
