The sheriff’s office is reporting gypsy burglary activity.
Deputies label the thieves “gypsies” because they have been known to move from town to town.
Two distraction type burglaries were reported over the weekend in the Town of Batavia and Pembroke.
In both cases, a home – often occupied by an elderly person – is targeted by someone who comes to their door with a story intended to distract the resident and get them out of their home. At this point another thief then enters the house.
If you think you have been targeted by someone trying to rip you off, or if you see suspicious activity in your neighborhood, call the sheriff’s office and report it.
