Police seek help identifying alleged jewelry thieves

Preston — State police say they need help identifying two men who allegedly stole jewelry from an elderly woman while she was home alone.

According to state police, the two men approached the woman’s home on Roosevelt Ave. Extension Friday morning and told her that they were there to do yardwork but needed her help identifying her property line. Police did not identify the woman.

While stepping outside her home to show one of the men the property line, the other stayed behind, police said. A day later, the woman and her daughter discovered that jewelry was missing from the home.

Police described the two men as white and possibly driving a dark-colored sedan. One may have been around 30 years old, police said. No further description was provided.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Troop E at (860) 848-6500.
