SCARSDALE, N.Y. A Chesterfield Road woman told Scarsdale Police Thursday morning that a man called her home and told her he needed to work on her gas lines, but when she called Con Edison she was told there was no record of work scheduled for her home.
A police officer went to the home to discuss the situation and, while he was there, a worker for Precision Pipeline Solutions arrived to do the work. Police told him that the homeowner did not want any work done as Con Ed had not confirmed the legitimacy, and the worker told police he understood as it was not the first time Con Ed had not notified homeowners of work to be done.
