Police in Yellowknife say a man is going door-to-door in search of homes to ransack.
According to RCMP, if you answer the door, the man asks to provide you with a snow removal service.
However, if nobody answers, he kicks open the door with a view to stealing from the house.
Police think it’s one individual trying the same act across town. He is described as an Aboriginal man with black hair, in his early thirties, often reported to be wearing black and carrying a backpack or duffel bag.
RCMP want residents to call in any suspicious activity that sounds similar to this, as they try to locate the suspect.
