Crime Alert - Ruse Burglary, area of 91st & Circle Ridge Drive, 2:00 pm this afternoon.

The Burr Ridge Police Department received a report of a residential burglary that occurred this afternoon at approximately 2:20 pm, at a home in the area of 91st & Circle Ridge Drive.
The resident answered a knock at the side door to her home and was greeted by a heavy set male Hispanic.  The male told the resident that he was working on street repairs and asked her to walk with him into the backyard of her property. While distracted, unknown offender(s) made entry to the front of the home, taking valuables from the home. The resident saw a second subject sitting in a white SUV, possibly a Toyota. The vehicle pulled up the resident’s driveway.
We ask residents to be alert for this vehicle and offenders. This type of burglary often targets the elderly, or people doing work outside their homes. The offenders will use several different “excuses” to distract a victim and gain compliance, such as posing as a utility worker, tree trimmer, or a handyman working on a neighbor’s house. Please share this information with friends, family, and neighbors.
Please remember to lock your doors, even when working in your yard. If you have a house alarm, set it, even if you are only leaving for a short time. Be cautious this time of year if you are outside putting up holiday decorations. 

If you see a suspicious person or vehicle, please call 9-1-1 immediately and let the police investigate.

If any person has information regarding this incident, or cameras in the area that might identify the vehicle or offenders, please contact the Burr Ridge Police Department at 630-323-8181.
