Hancock residents warned about scam

ARLINGTON, Ohio Hancock County sheriff s deputies are warning county residents to beware of individuals offering to help them with storm clean-up after an Arlington-area home was broken into this week.

Deputies say a suspected burglar was at the property Tuesday asking to clean up tree limbs that fell during last week s ice storm. It is believed he was inside the home when the home owner returned later that day.

The sheriff s office suggests residents ask for identification if approached by someone offering to clean away debris.
