GREELEY, Colo. — A man claiming to be a Greeley city worker testing residents’ water and offering conservation tips is gaining access to people’s homes, police said.

The city learned about the impostor when he tried to get inside the home of an actual city worker.

The man tells homeowners that he is a city employee and is there to test water and provide information on how to conserve better, said Sgt. Susan West of the Greeley Police Department.

West said the man has tried to get into homes on weekends and without appoints — both of which actual city workers never do.

The conman is described as Hispanic possibly in his 50s. He has salt and pepper hair.
