The Crime Scene for Feb. 11

Police: Be aware of fraudulent solicitors

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are asking residents to be wary of anyone asking for money for an organization that tracks sex offenders.

Police say a group calling itself “Unit 1, Agency” has been delivering flyers to local residents and businesses. The fliers say the group is “devoted to tracking registered sex offenders, making sure they live at the address they say they live at.” The flier asks residents and businesses to mail donations to this organization at an address on Pineburr Drive.

Only law enforcement has the authority to verify registered sex offenders’ addresses, police said in an e-mail to residents. “Unit 1, Agency has no authority to track registered sex offenders in Mecklenburg County or anywhere else in North Carolina,” the e-mail said.
