UPDATE: Man associated with posing as City of Kennewick employee contacted by police

Kennewick Police contacted the man identified as being associated with an alleged water testing scam.

Police tell Your Local ABC that the man advised officers that he was working for a California based company and was with a group of sales person operating in Kennewick and Pasco.

He was advised to stop all sales and was advised of business licensing requirements.

At this time, the business has not applied for a City of Kennewick business license.  However, based on the deceptive practices of the business identifying themselves as representing the City of Kennewick, the City of Kennewick has determined not to license this company to do business in Kennewick.

The investigation started after several residents contacted police concerning a suspicious man posing as a city employee requesting he be allowed to entere homes to test the water.
