MANCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) – Police in Manchester are looking for a pair of crooks who pretended to be water workers to get inside a house.
Police say a man walked up to a home on Kensington Street and told the homeowner he was a Town of Manchester Water Department worker. He told the people inside he needed to check the water pressure in the basement. While he and the homeowner went downstairs, another person came into the house and stole money out of a purse.
Police say the phony water worker is a white man between 35 and 40-years-old, about 5’9″ with a scruffy goatee, wearing a layered button-down jacket and jeans.
Manchester Police are reminding people that Town of Manchester that employees will have proper ID and will normally be driving marked town vehicles. If you have any questions, they say don’t let anyone in your home, and call police to make sure they are who they say they are.
If you have a tip call Manchester Police at (860) 645-5500.
