Fake Plumbers Burglarize South Bay Homes
EL SEGUNDO ( KTLA) -- Police are asking the public's help in finding two men who posed as plumbers to burglarize homes in the South Bay.

Two El Segundo homes were struck by the burglars late last week.

Officials say the men, dressed as plumbers, knock on doors telling residents there is a broken sewer line in the area. They then ask to check the house for leaks while the resident runs water in the backyard.

Once inside the suspects take whatever they can grab and leave within minutes, according to police.

In both incidents, the victims were more than 75-years-old.

The suspects are believed to be involved in similar burglaries in Torrance, Hermosa Beach, the city of Los Angeles and other unincorporated cities in Los Angeles County.

One of the suspects is described as a male Hispanic 40-50 years of age, 5'9", 175 lbs. with weathered and wrinkled skin. His partner is described as male Hispanic 30-35 years, 5'10", 230-250lbs.

Both suspects were possibly seen fleeing the area in a brown compact pick-up truck.

If you have seen these men you're asked to call the El Segundo Police Department at (310) 524-2200.
