DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Dawson Creek RCMP is informing the public of a suspicious individual acting as a gas company worker.

On February 8th, around noon, a male knocked on a resident’s door, claiming he worked for a gas company and requested to inspect the furnace.

The male did not have an ID and was denied entry. The gas company later confirmed that they did not have anyone in the area at that time.

Police says the male is around 6 feet tall, wearing a blue work jacket, blue coveralls, and a black balaclava (full face mask).

The RCMP reminds residents that if someone is knocking at the door wishing to gain entry, always ask and check for an official ID. The person in question should be wearing company-specific clothing with the company emblem easily identifiable.

If you’re in doubt, don’t hesitate to contact the local detachment in your area.
