Mercer County Sheriff's Office alerts the public to a scam


Information submitted:

Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey reports his office and other law enforcement agencies are investigating packages being delivered to a residence with the homeowner having not placed any orders. Multiple times a male subject has approached delivery drivers claiming to be the homeowner, or asking the homeowner if they accidentally received a package meant for the unknown male, in an attempt to intercept the package. Homeowners have reported a suspicious vehicle being in the area after the package was delivered. The vehicle is described as a light blue or silver vehicle, possibly a Hyundai. Anyone who observes an individual tampering with packages or receives unique deliveries should contact their local law enforcement agency, or the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office at 419-586-7724.
