Neighborhood Alert - Door-to-Door Scammer!
Posted in the Eagan Forum
#1 Jun 26, 2013
Mark C. Bell is accused of going door to door in Richfield with false stories about a broken-down or impounded car, and making pleas for emergency assistance in the $45 range. The elements of his story are similar: car trouble, a need for cash, promised payback. He may tell victims he works as a janitor at a nearby church, or involved in Teen Challenge. He may use the name of a neighbor to seem plausible.
Authorities describe the 50-year-old as well-dressed, well-spoken, and a scam artist. Police have issued a crime alert about Bell and his alleged activities.
Police say Bell has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 1983 that includes drug charges, burglary, forgery, robbery, fleeing police, weapons violations, and theft.
Should you see or come in contact with Mr. Bell please call 911 immediately.
