Police: Bogus FEMA Representative In Darien

DARIEN, Conn. - Darien police are warning residents about a person claiming to be a FEMA representative and asking to enter homes.

A resident of Cliff Avenue reported that at 9 a.m. Thursday he was approached by a man claiming to be from FEMA. The man asked the homeowner if he could go inside his house to assess storm damage. When the resident asked for identification, the man immediately returned to his car and drove off, police said.

He looked to be in his 40s, and was wearing khaki pants, a blue polo shirt and a blue pullover. He was driving a small maroon SUV, possibly a Honda CRV or an Acura. Police searched the area but were not able to locate his car.

Police said that residents should always ask for identification when somebody claiming to be utility workers or government officials arrive at their homes or businesses unexpectedly. If you are still uncomfortable with the situation, contact the police.
