Bethel Police say distraction burglaries continue to be an ongoing threat throughout Connecticut. Several incidents over the past few months have included scammers posing as employees from various occupations such as state jobs, water supply businesses, and energy companies. Scammers pose as employees in order to “distract” victims and gain entry into their homes. Additionally, scammers have posed as energy or service providers over the phone and insist that the victim pay their outstanding bill.  Bethel Police ask residents to be mindful of the potential for these incidents and call the Police Department should anyone observe or experience suspicious activity.
