Men posing as workers to gain access to homes
HAVERHILL — The Suffolk Constabulary is seeking information about a group of men who pose as water department employees to gain access to elderly people’s homes.
Authorities are investigating two separate incidents on Feb. 22 in which a man posed as an employee of Waterboard and talked his way into the homes.
The first incident occurred in Bury St. Edmunds around 10 a.m. when the man knocked on a door and told the homeowner that his neighbor’s pipes had burst. He was allowed to enter and two other men followed, according to the Suffolk Constabulary.
The homeowner’s wife questioned the men, who fled the home without taking anything.
The second incident occurred in Haverhill and proved more costly. Once again, the suspect stated he was from Waterboard to gain access to the home. This time, though, he acted alone and made off with money from the woman’s purse.
Police said there is no such agency as Waterboard and that anyone using that term is attempting to con the homeowner to gain access into their residence.
Anyone with information about these incidents or similar events is urged to contact Suffolk authorities at 01284 774 100 or Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111.
