Police on the lookout for two men claiming to be Century Link employees
Medford Police are on the look out for two men going door to door in east Medford, claiming to be Century Link employees.
At this point, it is unclear who these men are, and if they are affiliated with Century Link, but due to the nature of their interactions, residents are doubtful and police are investigating.
On Friday, February 8th, two men approached Medford resident Nancy Arthur's home three separate times, saying Century Link is coming to their neighborhood. Arthur told them she wasn't interested, has a no soliciting sign, and would like them to leave, but they were persistent.
"He was very threatening with his tone," Arthur said. "He didn't make us feel safe. He started calling me all these vulgar names, so I felt very threatened, and we called 911."
Lt. Justin Ivens of the Medford Police Department says whether they are employees or not, they could be violating city ordinances. That includes Solicitation in Violation of Signs (5.282) - a violation, and Prohibited Solicitation (5.258) - a crime.
News 10 called and emailed Century Link to see if these are employees, or rather people impersonating their employees, but we have not yet received a response.
MPD says they're attempting to locate these men and determine their identities, and from there will reach out to Century Link as well.
If you have any information, you can reach dispatch at (541) 770-4784.
