Police Investigating Burglary Scam In Peru

Posted by wlpo on July 14, 2011

Police in Peru are investigating a case of two phony repairmen taking advantage of an elderly man.

An 84 year old man on the west side of town says he let a Hispanic man inside to check for water leaks in his basement Wednesday afternoon.  After being downstairs for 10 to 15 minutes, the victim told police he came back upstairs and saw a valuable coin collection, cash and checkbook missing.  Police think another burglary came inside while his cohort was downstairs.

If you have information, call the Peru Police Department.
