Legislator Dunne Asks Homeowners To Be Cautious of Residential Distraction Burglaries

Legislator Dennis Dunne, Sr. and the Nassau County Police Department advise residents that individuals are perpetuating a series of burglaries and scams throughout Nassau County. In recent cases, individuals posed as utility workers to trick homeowners into allowing them access into their home.

The scam works like this: The perpetrator portrays themselves as a utility worker, surveyor or contractor and approaches the homeowner at their residence then engages them in distracting conversation about work that needs to be done in the rear yard. The criminal then diverts the homeowners into their rear yard which provides a means for an accomplice(s) to enter the open home and commit a burglary.

Here are some things homeowners can do to protect themselves from being victimized by these scammers:

~ Make sure your doors and windows are locked even when you are home.

~ Set your home burglar alarm system every time you leave your house, even if it’s for a
short period of time.

~ Lock valuables in a safe and don’t leave cash and jewelry in a conspicuous place, such
as the bedrooms, kitchen or on a counter.

~ Ask for proper identification of individuals before allowing them onto your property or
into your home, especially if you are not expecting anyone. Any Nassau County
employee will have photo identification.

~ If you are unsure of a persons’ credentials, ask for an office call back number.

Residents should immediately report any suspicious activity by calling 911
