Cops: Scam-artists posed as utility-men to rob home
Mar. 25, 2013
Boston Police are warning neighbors to use caution after two men posing as water utility workers allegedly robbed a home on Huron Circle last Thursday evening. An elderly homeowner was targeted in the incident, which began around 6:30 p.m. when a white male posing as a Water and Sewer employee rang the doorbell.
Police say that while the victim complied with directions to run his tap water in the kitchen, the suspect let another man in the house. That second suspect is alleged to have rummaged through the man’s bedroom belongings, making off with roughly $1,000 and jewelry. The suspects then made their escape in a blue utility vehicle. Anyone with information is encouraged to call District C-11 detectives at 617-343-4335.
