Please do not give out any information over the phone to people who call you. There are several phone call scams being placed at this time. The scammers are also spoofing numbers to make it look like local numbers are calling you. It is the best practice to not answer these calls if you have caller ID. Let the caller leave a message and do some research before calling the number back if you think that it is legit. Usually a simple internet search will shed some light on who is calling you. As always, feel free to contact the Crafton PD with any questions or to seek advice.
As a safety tip please remember to keep more distance between you and any other vehicles on the roadway when there is snow or ice on the roadways. Nothing is worth getting hurt over. Please slow down and take your time.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO LOCK YOUR VEHICLES AND YOUR RESIDENCE (DOORS AND WINDOWS).
