Learn to Protect Yourself from Gypsy Ruse Scams on May 6, 2010 at 7 PM at Lemont Police Department

Spring is generally welcomed, except for the reoccurrence of gypsy ruse schemes to burglarize homes and steal from unsuspecting residents, especially senior citizens.

To inform the public on the scams and cons used in gypsy crimes, the Lemont Police Department’s Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association is hosting expert speaker, Inspector William Hendrickson of the Illinois State Police, on Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 7:00 PM in Lemont Police Department’s community room at 14600 127th Street, Lemont.

Inspector Hendrickson, who has over 40 years of law enforcement experience, currently indentifies and investigates gypsies committing ruse entry burglaries, as well as a wide variety of gypsy crimes.

The public is invited to attend this free and informative presentation. Refreshments will be served. If you have any questions, contact Sergeant Therese Thompson at 630-257-2229.
