The Caledonia Police are asking the community for information to help them find two men suspected of posing as utility workers and burglarizing a home in the 8200 block of County Highway V at 6:30 p.m. July 29.

A man approached the owner of the home and told him that they were with the power company and needed to do work on a utility pole on the property. One man distracted the homeowner outside while a second suspect walked into the man’s house. As the homeowner and the suspect walked toward the home, the homeowner saw the second suspect walking out of his home, according to a press release from Crime Stoppers.

The homeowner asked who the second man was and the suspect told him that he was his partner.

Once the two men left, the homeowner realized that his home had been burglarized.

The first suspect is described as a white man who is 38 to 45-years-old, five-foot nine-inches to five-foot eleven-inches tall, decaying teeth, shorter brown hair, light skin a thick build and had a lump on the right side of his neck.  The man was last seen wearing a yellow polo shirt.

The second suspect is described as a white man between the ages of 34 to 38-years old, about five-foot six-inches to five-foot eight-inches tall, having a husky build, shorter brown hair and light skin. He was last seen wearing a T-shirt.
