Resident Robbed by Criminals posing as Official Tamarac Employees

Back in Lucy’s day, it was safe to open the door to anyone.

Tamarac Residents are asked by the Broward Sheriff’s Office to beware of scammers posing as city officials in order to gain access to their home to commit robberies.

On Thursday afternoon an elderly Tamarac resident allowed two people posing as “City of Tamarac” employees into their residence to “test the water”. Once inside the suspect’s removed jewelry from the victim’s bedroom.

If anyone comes to your front door posing as any utility worker, or any other person whom you are not expecting, do not open the door. However, always acknowledge that someone is home.   Get a description of the person and then call 911. Let a BSO deputy verify who they say they are.

For more information please call the Tamarac Crime Prevention Unit at 954.720.2225.
