Since mid-August, there have been five deception burglaries in the North Point precinct. In each of these cases, a suspect posing as an employee of the water department approaches an elderly person. The suspect tells the elderly person, that there is a water problem in the area and they have to go inside and check the water. As the suspect and the victim are in one area of the home, a second suspect enters the home and steals property.
The suspect claiming to be from the water department has been described by victims as being an olive-skinned male.
Citizens are reminded that if someone that is unfamiliar to them comes to their home and says they have to come inside: Don’t let them in and call police. Citizens should also keep an eye on the elderly persons in their communities and report any suspicious persons or activity.
