CUMMING, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Forsyth County are warning residents of men they say are posing as cable workers to get into homes so they can steal prescription medications.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that three men pretending to be Comcast employees have been disconnecting cable service and telling residents they’re responding to service problems.

The sheriff’s office says once inside the homes, the impostors ask residents to stay with the television as they go look for prescription medications.

Authorities say the men dress as Comcast workers, have ID badges and are believed to use a white pickup truck.

Sheriff’s officials say they’ve arrested one suspect — 43-year-old William Charles Arnold of Cumming — and charged him with theft. Jail records do not list an attorney for him who could be contacted.
