STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater police are warning residents about a repossession scam, spokesman Capt. Randy Dickerson said.

A white male in his 30s or 40s has contacted two residents in the past week. He told them he is from the bank and needs to repossess or reclaim property, Dickerson said.

The claim appears to be a trick, designed to gain access to the home to steal property such as appliances, Dickersons aid. The suspect may be driving a silver pickup.

Stillwater police are asking residents to report  similar incidents by calling 405-372-4171.
