Unidentified Man Impersonating DFS Agent Enters Gillette Home

A man impersonating a Department of Family Services employee allegedly entered a Gillette residence Monday evening after claiming to be working on a case.

The unidentified man appeared at the door of a home in the 600 block of Primrose Drive just after 6 p.m., claiming he needed to do a walk-through of the house in order to close a case, according to Gillette Police Department Lt. Brent Wasson, who shared the information Wednesday morning.

The 23-year-old female allowed him to come in to do the walk-through, and he left moments later. To her knowledge, he did not take anything or threaten her in any way including physically.

The incident was reported to GPD later that evening at 10:15 p.m., when the 27-year-old resident returned home with her children and learned what had taken place.

The man is described as being approximately 6-feet tall, around 200 pounds with short dark hair and a handlebar mustache.

When the officer followed up with DFS, she was told that they do not have an employee on staff who meets that description.
