Suspicious person knocks on door

A resident on Montmorenci Crossing in Fort Mill called Fort Mill Police on Sept. 13 to complain about a suspicious person who came to her door, according to a report.

The resident said someone was banging on her door and when she answered, she saw a young man who said he was looking for a particular family nearby and then later asked her if she was ill. The resident told police it seemed as if the man was trying to peer into her home. Later, she noticed several other people in a car parked outside her home.

Another person outside the home was able to note the car’s license plate number and police learned the car, a Camaro, was stolen from a rental agency.

Police are investigating.
