A couple came through my gate and into my yard, on Sunnyside in the 4000 block. When they heard me working the man said he was Anthony and that he was looking for landscaping work. I told him to leave and he said he was passing out flyers. Normally people leave flyers at the mailbox or on the gate, not inside the yard. This was on 12/24 when a lot of people are out of town. My guess is they were looking for open doors where they could snatch a purse but could have been casing houses. Not a lot of landscaping to be done at Christmas.
I went out into the street a few minutes later and saw them on the 4100 block. I looked to see if they’d left me or my neighbor any flyers but they had not. The man was black, medium build and the woman was white and overweight with chin length grey hair.
UPDATE: Several commenters have noted that they have interacted with the same people, and believe they are totally legit.
