Clearfield, PA – Clearfield Borough Police helped with several odd reports recently, including a man who had ingested antifreeze. According to reports released yesterday by officers, they were told that the unnamed man drank antifreeze so they went looking for him. He was found walking in the woods, and EMS transported the man to the hospital.

Clearfield Borough Police also helped with a woman wandering through a backyard. The East Pine Street resident told police the unknown woman was trespassing and destroying property. She was found to be under the influence of a controlled substance and was taken into custody.

And another report of a phone scam. The scammer attempted to impersonate a Social Security worker and informed the victim that a vehicle was rented in the victim’s name. The scammer then told the victim that the vehicle was connected to a drug related incident and that a warrant would be issued if the victim did not cooperate with providing personal information. Police are reminding the public to be cautious when answering unknown phone calls and not to provide personal information to unverified sources.
