Woman’s Cell Phone Taken during Suspicious Visit

Laurens County Deputy Sheriff Jamie Lee Edwards was dispatched to a Chapman Road, Fountain Inn residence at 7 last evening on a report of theft during an apparent confidence game. A woman reported that two men came to her residence saying they were selling security systems. She let them into her home and listened to their explanation of their system. She said that during the meeting they acquired information from her including her social security number. After they left she went to the living room to get her cell phone and it was gone. She believes one of the men took it while she was talking with the other man. Deputy Edwards reports that when he called the phone numbers listed for the allegedly security company he got no answer. The case was passed on to investigators at the Sheriff’s Office.
