Between December 3rd and 4th, police were dispatched to two different areas of town regarding suspicious circumstances. Two residents, living in different areas of the town told police that someone approached their front door and either knocked, or attempted to open it. The areas were canvassed by officers but they did not find the persons that were reportedly seen at these homes. With the recent thefts in LaSalle, make sure you know what to do should this happen to you. If you encounter such a situation, do not open the door, but ask the person who they are and what do they need. You can talk to these persons while keeping the door closed. It is important that you contact police immediately to ensure that we have a decent chance of finding them in the area and ascertaining their need to knock on our residents’ door.
