DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Durham police are looking for a man they say was going door-to-door, asking for personal information in exchange for a chance to get a COVID-19 test.
Investigators say a man was reportedly going door to door in a northern Durham neighborhood asking residents for personal information. He said he needed the information in order for them to get coronavirus testing at the Durham Police Department.
The suspect was described as a white male who got into a white Nissan occupied by several people, police say.
Police are warning Durham residents that officers are not doing such testing, nor would they go door-to-door asking for personal information for testing.
