However, the Facebook version of the message conveys a very different scenario.
The Swissvale Police Department is advising residents to be aware of several individuals impersonating water company employees. The individuals come to the house in a group of three or four, distract the home owner while they check the water lines, and commit theft. If anyone comes to your house claiming to be a water/utility company employee without an appointment, do not let them in. Call the water/utility company to verify who they are, even if they produce identification, or call 911 and request the police. Ironically, the Facebook version of this message, which was sent out by police on Nixle, a notification service for law enforcement and government agencies, conveys a different message.

Commenters express outrage on the business’s Facebook page after some of the company-owned restaurants post signs prohibiting guns on the premises.
Buffalo Wild Wings is attracting controversy after some of the chain’s company-owned restaurants began posting signs banning guns on the property.

Maddy Adams responded to last week's afterschool brawls in Swissvale by posting her own take on Woodland Hills on WPXI-TV's Facebook page.
When you hear the words "champion" and "Woodland Hills" in the same sentence, the first thought is one of the high school sports teams. That was not the case Wednesday night when Woodland Hills School Board lauded high school senior Maddy Adams for being a champion of the district—using the written word. Substitute Superintendent Alan Johnson did not directly address the brawls that broke out in Swissvale last week as Woodland Hills High School students exited their bus near the corner of South Braddock and Woodstock avenues. He had issued a statement last week regarding the matter. But he did point out the "inspired response" to the incident that Adams wrote on WPXI-TV's Facebook page on Jan. 10. Her post, as of early Thursday morning, …
