Police Alert Residents To PPL Scam

It has been brought to the attention of the Wright Township Police Department that in the neighboring communities of Butler Township and Hazle Township, a white male has gone to elderly resident’s homes in those communities stating he is a PP&L employee, lures them to their back yards while another person enters their home and burglarizes it. A black Ford Escape may be the vehicle they are using.

Chief Engler requests residents remain alert of anyone coming to their homes and requests anyone seeing suspicious persons or vehicles, call 911.
