MACEDONIA, OH (WOIO) -

Macedonia police sending a warning to people about potential break-ins. 

Police posted a lengthy message on Facebook detailing how people are knocking on doors asking to shovel snow. 

According to the post, two suspects knocked on several doors asking to shovel snow. Two of the three houses someone answered but at the third no one answered so the suspects walked around the back and partially opened the back door. 

The two residents who answered their door called police immediately and police were able to catch the suspects not far from the area. 

Police encourage people to call the police immediately when something unusual or out of the ordinary happens.
