Trio Posing as Water Authority Workers Burglarize Homes

Amherst, NY (WBEN) Amherst Police say three men are posing as Water Authority workers are burglarizing homes throughout the area.

Detectives say one of the men distracted her while the others stole jewelry from her bedroom. Similar burglaries have happened in Cheektowaga and Clarence yesterday.

The suspects are described as white males 40-50 years of age with medium builds, one with black hair. Anyone with information is urged to contact Amherst Police Detectives at 689-1342.
