Police are looking for three men who stole a resident’s jewelry while posing as “water department employees."
According to police, two suspects distracted the home's residents while a third robbed the house.
On Thursday, Sept. 20, at approximately 9:20 a.m., a man approached an Ainsworth Avenue homeowner who was working in his garage. The suspect told the homeowner that they were a water department employee and needed to follow him into his backyard to check the water flow, according to police.
While they were in the backyard a second suspect, also posing as a water department employee, spoke to a second resident who was inside the house. The suspect convinced this resident to go into the basement so they could check on the water pipes, according to police.
After both suspects left the residence the homeowners realized that the house had been burglarized. Several pieces of jewelry were stolen by a third suspect, according to police.
The first suspect was described as a heavy set white male wearing a horizontally striped shirt. He was approximately 5 feet, 8 inches tall with brown hair. The second suspect was described as a white male wearing a blue shirt with two front pockets. He was approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall with brown hair.
