O'Mara said that police have been keeping an eye out for scams during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. He said that residents must be very careful.
"If you did not call a contractor, don't let them in your house or on your property," he said. "If they are persistent, call the police."This is a developing news story. Patch will provide more information as it's made available.
