ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The Allentown Police Department has issued a warning to homeowners in Allentown and surrounding areas.
According to police, a Hispanic female with a yellow jacket and tool belt is knocking on doors and requesting to check the basement for "toxic water."
Police say when the female goes down to the basement with the homeowner another person will sneak in and steal jewelry from the home.
Just on Thursday two homeowners were robbed.
Police say the burglars have been operating north of Tilghman Street and west of 15th Street.
Police think the suspects may be traveling in a silver van or similar looking vehicle.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Allentown Police Detective Bureau at 610-437-7721.
