The Milford Police Department is asking residents to safe guard themselves against becoming victims of distraction burglary.
The police responded to a complaint of a distraction burglary on Monday, May 28 around 10 a.m.
An elderly Rogers Avenue resident told police that a man knocked on her door, offering to do some yard work for her. After she agreed, the man asked for some money.
The resident went upstairs to get some money while the man used her bathroom. When she returned, she noticed that the man had left a room where she kept money and ran out of the house.
He was driving a black four-door vehicle with a beige license plate with black characters on it.
The man is described as a 60 years of age, bald, wearing a light-colored hat with a brim and brown clothes.
Police are reminding people to keep their doors locked and to not allow unsolicited visitors into their home.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Milford Police Department Detective Division at (203) 877-1465.
