Police warn of ruse burglaries

The Tinley Park Police Department would like to remind residents to be on the lookout for ruse burglaries, which involve people showing up at your home claiming to be working nearby or with a utility company, but with the true purpose of getting into your house to steal your belongings. Remember to always ask for identification, and call the police department or the company they claim to be with if you’re unsure.
