Scam Artist Alert

Police are now warning that con artists have followed the snow birds to our area. So far 4 elderly people have fallen victim to one scheme. All of them live near Delray Beach. The thief says he's with the water department to get inside of homes. He distracts the victim and then steals their jewelry. The sheriff's office is giving this advice. Don't let anyone inside your home unless you know who they are or why they are there. Also, if a person says they work for a utility they should be wearing a uniform and should have identification with a picture. Most importantly if you're uncomfortable don't let the person inside and call police.
