A Godfrey resident’s home was robbed while a person, posing as an Ameren employee, checked the home’s gas meter. According to information from the Madison County Sheriff’s Department, officers responded Tuesday, June 4, at 6:54 p.m., to a home in the 7500 block of Humbert Road in Godfrey, to a report of suspicious activity. The victim said a white male knocked on her front door, identified himself as an Ameren employee and asked to check her gas meter.
