A neighbor shared the following information to Turfway Park’s NextDoor site:
A few men have been spotted driving a brown van in a neighborhood near the intersection of Stop 11 & Combs Road claiming to sell Kirby products and giving wrapping paper as an incentive for listening to them. The men then come back to your house later to break in. This has been confirmed by a local police officer and residents have been asked to contact police if you see these suspects and vehicle.
