Dryden Police are investigating two suspicious incidents where a female entered apartments at senior housing complexes indicating she was there to perform housekeeping duties.  These visits were not expected by the residents.

During the first incident at 10 Victoria, the suspect said she was there to clean the bathroom, but she was asked to leave by the resident, and did so.  A day later at 330 Van Horne, a female entered an apartment and went into the bedroom before the resident knew she was there.  This woman was wearing green nursing scrubs and on leaving she said she had been there to make the bed; following this, it was learned money was missing from the bedroom.

Police are asking the assistance of anyone who has experienced a similar incident or has information that may assist in this investigation.
