Just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Halifax District RCMP responded to a complaint involving two suspicious women in a home in Upper Tantallon.
RCMP were called by the home owner, who was not home at the time. They had been contacted by a concerned neighbour after the two women were observed in the home with a vacuum cleaner and a mop. The investigation has determined that the house was left unlocked in order for the neighbour to walk the owner's dog, however, two women showed up, cleaned the house, and left without knowing they had the wrong address.
Although the house was cleaned for free, RCMP would like to take this opportunity to remind home owners to ensure their doors are locked at all times. As well, commend the neighbour for having been observant and contacting the home owner.
