Police said they are looking to talk to two men who arrived at a Simsbury house uninvited this week and checked thoroughly to see if anyone was home.
They didn’t break into the house, but a surveillance camera captured their images and words — including one of the men saying, “It doesn’t look like anyone’s home, Dude,” police said.
They drove a gray, contractor-style van with a black border along the bottom and a ladder on the roof, police said on Twitter and Facebook.
The incident happened about 3 p.m. Tuesday on Stratton Brook Road, which connects routes 309 and 167. One of the men rang a doorbell at the home, and told the other that it didn’t look like anyone was home. He instructed the other man to check the back of the house, to look in windows and see if there was a car on the property, police said. They eventually left.
While the men did not appear to break any laws, the homeowner was concerned enough to report the incident to police, they said. She also posted the video on social media.
Det. Jason Trombley said other towns have had burglaries or attempted break-ins involving two men and a ladder.
Anyone who has information about the men is asked to call Trombly at 860-658-3142.
