MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Manitowoc police say two men claiming to be city workers stole money from a victim on the city's south side Thursday afternoon.
Police say the two men went to a house, claiming to be working for Manitowoc's city inspections department and checking for burst pipes. An older resident let the men inside. One of the suspects distracted the victim by asking for money to fix damage to the house, while the other suspect searched the home and stole cash.
One man was described as white, in his 50s, about 5'9" with a husky build, wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans. The other man was white with a darker complexion, in his 30s, about 5'6" with a medium build.
Anyone with information is asked to call Manitowoc police at (920) 686-6551. Manitowoc authorities say anyone who truly works for the city will carry and display an ID.
