A man posed as a county auditor employee Tuesday morning and appeared to be casing a home inside a gated community.
A Harbourside Drive resident spotted a white Chevy car with a paper sign reading “County Auditor” while she was out walking her dog, according to a Sandusky police report.
She then saw a man wearing a jogging suit walking around a home. When she asked him what he was doing, he didn’t answer any of her questions and kept talking about her dog.
On Wednesday the woman contacted the Erie County Auditor’s office and learned no one had been sent into the neighborhood the previous day. She suspected the man was surveying homes for future burglaries, the report said.
