It was dark outside when Shirley Baisden heard a knock at the door and went to see who it was. She lives in the Mud Fork area of Logan County.
She said when she went to the door she saw a man she didn't know, dressed in plain clothes. He told her he was a deputy and needed to ask the homeowner some questions.
"He said that there had been a ruckus or something down off the hill and he wanted to see if we saw anyone up here," Baisden said. "We told him no."
She said she did not open the door and told the man she was going to call police. She said at that time he ran away.
The incident happened Thursday evening. Since then the Logan County Sheriff's Department has put out a notice saying that there are several people in plain clothes going around the Mud Fork area stating that they are with the Logan County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff Sonya Porter said individuals are usually either trying to get inside the homes or trying to obtain money. Porter said there are no deputies soliciting for any programs in Logan County at this time. She said if any residents encounter someone in plain clothes stating that they are with the Logan County Sheriff's department, residents should call for help immediately. Porter said people should never open their doors for the individuals in plain clothes and should keep their doors locked.
