YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are investigating an incident where a woman impersonated a Met-Ed employee at a York County business.
Spring Garden Township police said the woman on Thursday wanted to perform an “electric audit” of an apartment above the business in the 1200 block of East Market Street, but she could not produce identification or a work order.
She left the business when the owner called Met-Ed to check on her employment.
The woman was described as white with short, curly blonde hair, 30-40 years old, and 5’5″ tall with a thin build. Police said she was wearing black pants and a green Met-Ed shirt.
The utility confirmed the shirt style was taken out of service years ago.
She left the business in a small white pickup truck, possibly a Ford Ranger or Chevrolet S-10, with a white cap over the bed, white tubes attached to the top of the cap, and a black circular emblem on the driver’s door that said “Met-Ed,” police said.
The driver was said to be a white man between 40-45 years old, with a thin build, round face and black and gray hair.
