The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office received information from a Wheeling resident that there was a man walking around Wheeling on Wednesday.
The man was described as a white male, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, wearing shorts and a T-shirt with “Dish Network” on it. The man was carrying a folder with “Dish Network” on it also.
The citizen reported the individual was allegedly asking about satellite service and other questions. The reporting party said the man continued walking and was not seen with a vehicle. Allegedly DISH did not have anyone in the Wheeling area doing this type of activity, according to Sheriff Steve Cox.
“We are concerned that someone may have been casing locations for a burglary or seeking an opportunity to commit a criminal act,” Cox said. “We are asking anyone with information on this person to please share that with our office so we can further investigate the matter.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at 660-646-0515.
