The Putnam County Sheriff and the District Attorney are cautioning residents to be aware of thieves impersonating utility workers as the region continues to be gripped by power outages.  They says there is a concern about people becoming victims to a burglary or larceny by those posing as NYSEG employees.  Real utility workers will not knock on your door and ask you if they can check your inside wiring or any other safety issue inside your house.  Putnam County officials are also cautioning residents to beware of fake “home oil company” representatives or employees who want to enter your home to purportedly make sure you are safe.
