Fake Construction Workers Rip Off Burlingame Resident

All Lanes Clear on Highway 80 After Fatal Crash in Vacaville

BURLINGAME (KRON) — A construction worker shows up at your door claiming to have damaged a pipe in your backyard, be suspicious.

That’s the message from Burlingame police after just such an incident happened this week.

A man wearing construction worker get-up showed up at a home on Bellevue Avenue in Burlingame and told the resident his company had damaged a water pipe. While the man and the resident went into the backyard, a second man also dressed like a construction worker walked into the open house and walked off with a safe.

There was no broken pipe.

The first man is about 40, stands 6’4″ and weighs 250 lbs. The second man is a little shorter and lighter. A third man stayed in the truck as a driver.

Police say if someone shows up at your house with a story like this, be suspicious and demand identification.
