Pohatcong Police look for utility worker impersonator

POHATCONG TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Pohatcong Police are looking for men they say have been posing as utility employees in order to rob homes.

Police said at least three incidents occurred in the township over the last few months. The latest incident was reported on August 25th on Victory Avenue in the Parkside area, according to a post on the police department's Facebook page. Police said there had been additional incidents on the southern end of the township.

According to police, the men seem to be targeting elderly residents, and creating some kind of distraction while one or to from the group remove valuables from the home.
