Up­per dwynedd po­lice are seek­ing the pub­lic’s help in lo­cat­ing two sus­pects in­volved in an al­leged dis­trac­tion bur­glary Feb. 21.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, around 11 a.m., an 82-yearold fe­male res­i­dent of the 700 EORFN RI GDU­fiHOG $venue re­ported a res­i­den­tial bur­glary that had just taken place.

Po­lice said the vic­tim was vis­ited by a white man, de­scribed as in his 40s with dark hair and a dark short beard, who claimed to be “the roof guy” there to in­spect her roof. The man asked the vic­tim if a woman claim­ing to be his daugh­ter — de­scribed as in her 30s with brown hair and a slight ac­cent — could wait in­side while he was work­ing, po­lice said.

The man pointed out mois­ture around a ceil­ing vent in the vic­tim’s liv­ing room that needed re­pair, and the woman dis­tracted the vic­tim while the man scouted the home for valu­ables, po­lice said. A safe con­tain­ing cash and jew­elry was later dis­cov­ered miss­ing, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Po­lice ask any­one who may have had sim­i­lar vis­its by un­ex­pected con­trac­tors or ser­vice per­son­nel, or who may have seen any­thing un­usual in the area of the bur­glary, to con­tact Up­per dwynedd po­lice at 215-699-5861.

All res­i­dents are re­minded to use the ut­most care be­fore let­ting any­one into your home, and to not be afraid to DsN IRU LGHnWL­fiFDWLRn, po­lice said. Util­ity con­trac­tors in this area wear uni­forms iden­ti­fy­ing their com­pany, and only in rare emer­gency sit­u­a­tions make un­planned vis­its to a home; when in doubt call 911 im­me­di­ately, po­lice said.
