Police warn of possible scam
The Fruita Police Department issued an advisory after reports, in Fruita and Grand Junction, about an Orem, Utah-based company, Security Networks or Vision Security LLC. Police said in a release, “They were contacted by our officers and were unable to explain what they sold or which company they were working for.
