Men Posing as Inspectors Try to Gain Entry Into Tyndall Park Home

Winnipeg Police CrestA Tyndall Park homeowner says men twice tried to get into his home over three days by posing as something they’re not.

Winnipeg police said a man knocked on the door of the home at about 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 1 and tried to get in by claiming to be from a local utility company. The man was not wearing a uniform, nor could he provide I.D., so the homeowner refused. The man left in a black van with tinted windows.

Two days later, two men claiming to be conducting a home inspection tried the same thing. The homeowner again refused to let them in, and they left in a white “expensive-looking” car.

Police are looking for three Asian males, all with short dark hair, clean shaven and with a strong accent. The first is described as between 30-40 years old, about 5’8″ tall with a medium build. The second is 30-40, about 5’10” tall with a heavy build. The third is 20-30 years old, 5’6″ tall with a medium build.
