Sheriff’s office issues warning of potential vacuum scam, reports no wrongdoing at this time

BRIDGEPORT - The Morrill County Sheriff's office is advising residents to keep an eye on pets after receiving reports of missing and stolen dogs.

According to the sheriff's office, two male subjects were seen driving around the area in what appeared to be a white suburban with Oregon license plates. They were going door-to-door saying they were selling vacuums, but would ask about dogs and if they were for sale on Craig's list.

Two reports of stolen and missing dogs have been submitted to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office issued an update Tuesday night, stating that the operation, while perhaps unorthodox, appeared to be legitimate. The agency had made contact with the individuals in question and searched the vehicle, turning up no evidence of wrongdoing.
