VINELAND — The man police believed was claiming to work for the city’s electric utility to gain access to homes is actually an independent contractor with an energy sales company, according to a Facebook post from the department.

Police had received a report earlier this month that a man had identified himself as a worker with Vineland Municipal Utilities at a home in the area of Edna and Junior drives.

They said they did not know whether the man was trying to gain entry into the home but said he matched the description of a suspect the department reported Jan. 16.

The department still encouraged residents to use caution with people who go door to door soliciting products.
