Burglars posing as Shippensburg employees

The Borough of Shippensburg is warning residents of distraction-style burglaries where the crooks are posing as Water Department employees.

The burglars have been asking for access to water meters and stealing property while the resident is distracted, according to a borough news release Friday.

Employees will have badges and a Borough of Shippensburg truck, and an appointment will be made before any access to a home is requested.

Residents should call 911 if anyone attempts to enter their home without a badge or appointment.
