If I see a work van at my neighbor's homes, I'm calling the police. Let the police decide if it is a legit job or a break-in. Too many robberies have been commiitted by "workmen." This is a criminal ploy that has become too popular in recent months. I wonder if the witness got a tag number or took a picture. Sad this is what the world has become. Be suspicious of everything!!!

A similar burglary happened on our street a few months ago. "Workmen" entered the home during the day and stole many valuable items while nobody was home. That's right, they were at work earning an honest dollar while their home is being ransacked by the scumbags. Please call the police if you see this happening to your neighbors. Don't assume they belong there.
