Masquerading 'utility workers' are suspects in burglary

Deputies from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office are on the lookout for a couple of people posing as utility workers making the rounds to assess damage from recent storms.

At a home in the Woodside area, deputies reported that one of a pair of "workers" distracted the homeowner while the second entered the home and "removed valuables," according to a Feb. 25 statement from the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies are asking residents to report suspicious activity by calling 363-4911, and are reminding residents to ask for identification from anyone claiming to be representing an official agency.
