Newfields police issued an alert Tuesday afternoon after a green pickup truck was reportedly seen driving around looking for houses to burglarize.
At about 12:30 p.m. the truck, with a license plate number of 3327018, was seen driving on Conner Lane, police said. A man went up to a home to see if anyone was there. The homeowner came to the door, at which point the man said he and two other men were looking for work cutting trees, according to the report.
No business name was adorned on the truck, police said.
"We believe the subjects were checking the area hoping to find a vacant house to break in," police said.
Police said if anyone sees the truck in question, call them at 603-772-9010.
