Burglars pose as city employees

$20K taken from Sellersburg home in unusual crime



“If they can't produce an ID, don’t let them in the home and call the police,” Whelan said.

He added that if a homeowner has any suspicions of someone wanting to come into a home, to call the company they claim to work for to verify the visit.

“If they are legit, they are not going to mind that you call to verify,” Whelan said.

He said the extended time that the intruders were in the home and that they were equipped with radios shows they had likely committed similar burglaries in the past.

“They were very well prepared for what they were doing,” Whelan said. “It is bad enough we have this type of crime, but when people are victimizing the elderly, it is very irritating for me.”
