SOUTH RIVER – Since the threat of scams and crimes committed by individuals posing as utility employees exists, the South River Police Department (SRPD) wants to familiarize the public with the borough’s meter readers.
Edward Adamski and Nicholas Dulski, as employees of the South River Water Department and Electric Utility, always display proper identification, according to a statement released by the SRPD.
Other legitimate cable, telephone and gas company employees will all have proper identification and be willing to display it upon request as well, according to the statement. They will also be able to provide their supervisor’s phone number so you can verify their legitimacy.
Anyone in doubt should contact the SRPD at 732-238-1000 or 9-1-1 immediately to report the incident. Try to describe the suspect(s) and any vehicles they may be using to the dispatcher.
