Trail RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich issued a clarification on his Monday report about two unknown men knocking on doors and requesting personal information from locals.
“We received several calls from members of the public identifying the two males approaching people at their residents in the Trail area and requesting personal information,” Wicentowich explained.
“The two males are working for Access Gas Services and are asking to see FortisBC billing information of local residents.”
Typically, most companies will notify the Trail and Greater District RCMP detachment about operating in this manner in the area, he added.
“However, this company did not take that measure in this case.”
The sergeant says Access Gas Services has been contacted by the RCMP and asked to notify the police when they are operating in the area in the future.
