Phony workers distract victims to rob themIPSWICH — Authorities are searching for information on four similar burglaries in Ipswich, Bury St. Edmunds and the village of Hawstead.

In one incident, a man arrived at a Kingsley Close home in Ipswich about 1 p.m. March 28, stating he was from the council and needed to check the homeowner’s water, a Suffolk Constabulary news release said.

The woman allowed the man in and stood with him in the kitchen, where she noticed two other men outside the house. When the man left, the woman reported that a quantity of cash had been stolen from her home.
