Please report suspicious people knocking at your door. It could be a wrong address, or they could be checking to see if someone is home..

About 2 weeks ago from Boxford Police's Twitter via Twitter for Android

We have had a few reports of someone knocking on doors and asking if someone named "so-and-so" was home. The person was driving a black jeep and had multiple tattoos. If anyone comes to your door and then makes up a reason for knocking and seems out of place then please let us know. It could be just a coincidence or it could be someone checking to see if anyone is home. Calling the police could allow us to prevent a potential crime and/or identify the individual.

As always we thank you for your assistance.
