Police look into phony Vt. investigators

Associated Press

Police said they have received reports of suspicious people posing as representatives of the Vermont Department of Children and Families. State Police spokeswoman Stephanie Dasaro said a woman and two men showed up at a Sunderland residence Monday and told a grandmother that a child’s parents were under investigation by ‘‘child protective services.’’ They physically picked up the child to examine him and indicated they might return. The department received an October report of a woman at a St. Johnsbury home who said she was a DCF worker investigating a child abuse report. She examined the child.
