• Someone tampering with electrical, gas or sewer systems without an identifiable company vehicle or uniform.
• Sounds of breaking glass, gunshots, screaming or fighting.
• Strangers removing license plates or loading valuables into vehicles from a residence, even if the moving truck looks legitimate.
