This just in from the Glen Meadow Estates Homeowners Association: An older man rang a doorbell early this morning on Cox Lane near Crown Shore Drive with a friendly golden retriever in tow. Although the dog appeared to belong to the man, he said it was “lost” and requested help. The homeowner felt the man was possibly trying to use the dog to see if anyone was around before committing burglary. A similar “lost dog” scam was reported in March, this time being perpetrated by a young woman and two male accomplices. The HOA attributed the March scam to three daytime home burglaries.
