Lunenburg District RCMP have charged a 49-year-old Lunenburg County woman following a two-month investigation into suspicious incidents.
Between December 30, 2019 and January 27, 2020, Lunenburg District RCMP received multiple reports from residents about a woman attending their homes saying she was a home care worker. The circumstances under which the home care worker attended these homes were suspicious and in some instances thefts had occurred.
Police determined that the woman was not employed as a home care worker at the time of the incidents and was not lawfully in the residences.
On February 13, Linda Deloris Tibbo was arrested without incident and later released. She is scheduled to appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court on May 27 at 9:30 a.m.
Tibbo has been charged with five counts of Being Unlawfully in a Dwelling and Theft under $5,000.
The investigation is continuing and additional charges are expected.
Investigators feel that due to the nature of these incidents, there may be additional victims. Anyone who feels they could be a victim, or has concerns about someone else who could be a victim, is encouraged to contact Lunenburg District RCMP at 902-527-5555.
RCMP want to remind the public to check the person’s identification and confirm employment prior to letting strangers into your homes.
