On Wednesday La Crosse County Sheriff’s Deputies took a complaint from the small community of Stevenstown, located in La Crosse County between Holmen and Mindoro.
The victim indicated that two subjects, both male/white in their late 20s, approached the residence and posed as surveyors. One man convinced the victim to show him the residence’s lot lines, while the other male subject entered the residence and searched through drawers. However, the victim did not notice anything missing from the house after the subjects left.
The two subjects were driving a full-size, white SUV. Please be on the lookout for this type of scam. If anyone has any further information, call the Sheriff’s Department.
