Milford police are issuing a warning after men posing as water company employees got into an elderly couple’s house and stole hundreds of dollars.
A man went to the couple’s Joyce Court home at 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 4 and said he had to check the pipes in the basement, police said.
They allowed him inside and heard a noise upstairs while they were in the basement with him, so the elderly husband went to check on the source and found a second man in their bedroom who had taken around $400 cash.
When the resident said he was going to call police, the intruder grabbed the husband, sat him down in a chair preventing him from calling the police.
After the wife said she was calling the police, the two men fled down the road and got into a waiting black station wagon or SUV, then left the area.
Anyone with information is asked to call Milford Police at 203-878-6551 or Detective Mitch Warwick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-878-4730.
