Lincoln police are looking for a man pretending to do maintenance work as a way to get into apartments and steal belongings.
The suspect claims he’s there to check water pressure or for asbestos. There were four confirmed incidents Saturday morning and several more are being investigated. One victim reported $1,400 in cash and jewelry stolen.
LPD advises residents to check with their landlord or superintendent if there is maintenance scheduled and not to let anyone in the apartment unless it can be confirmed they are supposed to be there.
