DIXON, Ill. (WTVO) — Dixon Police sent out a warning Tuesday night that thieves are posing as city water workers to get inside homes.

Investigators said that someone in a green and yellow vest, and with documents with the City of Dixon logo, approached a homeowner on S. Galena Avenue Monday afternoon. They asked them to look at something in the back yard.

Police said that another suspect entered the home and took several items during that time.

Officials said that nearby security cameras spotted the crew of five, who were driving a black Ford Edge.
