I wouldn’t worry too much about it. They might just be looking for someone who is failing to pay child support or something equally not-dangerous. Anyway, now you know who to watch out for! And the police are obviously on his tail so it osunds like it will get wrapped up soon.

You should call your local PD and tell them what happened and ask if they have indeed been doing surveillance or if this is something to worry about. Why would you be freaked out though if it really is the PD? They are actively monitoring the community for safety. 🙂

When I was in high school, the house two doors down from me had drug dealers living there, and druggies and cops both would park in front of our house. We got pretty used to it. A couple months later, there was a drug bust for over $25,000 worth of marijuana! Apparently, the mom had no sense of smell, and had no idea her husband and two sons were dealing. They’re all in jail, but the mom still lives there. It’s a pretty straight looking house too, which is even weirder. Absolutely insane.

That sounds weird.  Just to be sure, I would call the local Police Station and confirm what they told you.  Also, assuming it is legitimate, ask why they’re doing surveilance?  If it’s your neighbor, you should know!  Take care!

That would freak me out too.  I hate unmarked police cars.  I’d definately be calling the cops to verify this is a legit police officer.

Did he show you a badge? I like PP’s suggestion of double checking with the police department. Funny, I thought surveilence guys always hid out in big vans cleverly disguised as flower delivery trucks. That’s what movies and TV has taught me so far.

I agree with the previous posters. I would definately call the local police and ask what is going on. Do you know which house they were referring to? How far down from you? I would be freaked out for sure…see if you can get the police on the phone to explain!

how creepy!  I would be a little concerned too…Mr. L would love this though because he wants to be a cop and I am sure he would try and assist in some weird way.   I agree that you should contact the PD to make sure there is an investigation going on.

I would ask to see his badge and ID, they whould always let you see that if they identify themself as a police officer.  That way if anything happens or if you felt like it you could call the police department.

I agree with the PPs….and I would be a bit concerned too!  I would want to check that it is a legitimate surveillance to ease my mind – you know his name so you should be able to find something out (even if it is just a confirmation that this guy is, in fact, a police officer).  As crissycakes said, it wouldn’t hurt to check out his badge to properly identify him either.  Keep us updated!

That is creepy!  How long did he end up staying there?  I’m paranoid too (most likely the side effect of my profession) so I’d take down his license plate number, his shield number and a physical description.  I sound insane right?  But I work with the most heinous crimes on a daily basis, that kinda crazy is a-ok!

creepy creepy. Call the PD just to double check that it is legit.
