Home Invasion Burglaries/Diversion Thefts

These burglaries and thefts usually target elderly citizens distracted by one subject while others enter the residences and steal items of value. In these incidents, typically one subject approaches the home, lures the resident(s) to the rear of the property by saying he was surveying the property, checking property lines to install a fence for a neighbor, or removing trees or other items at the direction of the municipal authorities or a neighbor. Other subjects then enter the house and remove valuables. Sometimes, the subjects used walkie-talkie type phones to communicate with one another.
