PEPPERELL, Mass. — Police in a Massachusetts town are warning residents after a man posing as an EMT entered a home late Saturday night.

The Pepperell Police Department said the man was dressed like an EMT and claimed to be performing a well-being check when he entered the residence at 10:45 p.m., according to WHDH.

The residents said the man seemed to become nervous and left after they questioned him.

Police said residents should take precautions to avoid burglary by using security systems such as alarms and surveillance cameras.

“Residents are also reminded to keep their doors locked at night and when they are away from home, and to never let someone into their homes who they do not know,” police said.
