Newington police are looking for two burglars who posed as water company employees to gain access to house occupied by two elderly people.
Police responded to a burglary in progress in the 900 block of Willard Avenue at 1:10 p.m. and the victims said that two men pushed their way into the house.
They went into several rooms, saying they needed to test the water, and took a cordless telephone away from the homeowner to prevent her from calling for help.
The men fled in a dark gray or dark green work van.
Police contacted the MDC and learned that no employees or sub-contractors were working in that area at the time of the burglary.
No one was hurt during the burglary.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Officer Aselton of the Newington Police Department at (860)-666-8445.
