The Police warn of two incidents outside of Carmel Valley where a man identifies himself as a utility worker, asking to inspect the rear of the house. While the victim is distracted, a second suspect goes inside the house and commits a burglary. Victims are usually elderly. The male suspect is described as a well groomed, 40-50, 5’5” to 5’8”, with short dark hair. This is a scam. Consider calling the utility to confirm the work if any unsolicited utility workers request access to your property.
