Hayward burglars pose as contractors

A notice from Hayward police:

This is to advise the community that there was a residential burglary on Cottonwood Drive. An elderly woman who was home alone was contacted by a male suspect who came to her front door claiming to be a fencing contractor for the neighbor to the rear of her home.

The suspect stated the neighbor was going to put in a new fence, and there was a discrepancy with the property line on the plans and asked if he could enter the backyard to take some measurements of the rear fence line. The homeowner complied and escorted the suspect into the rear yard. The suspect insisted that the homeowner stay outside with him at all times for liability reasons since he was on her property.

The homeowner noted that the suspect was carrying a walkie-talkie radio, and periodically used it to speak to another male voice. The suspect asked a lot of questions to the homeowner to keep her occupied, and appeared to be taking measurements using his own footsteps and pace. The homeowner became more suspicious as she continued to speak with him.

After 15 to 20 minutes in the back yard area, the suspect advised the homeowner that he had to return to his truck for some tools and a business card. The homeowner went back inside her residence and noticed that her purse had been moved, and money missing from her wallet, as well as jewelry missing from the bedroom.

Suspect #1 is a Hispanic male, 5’8” – 5’10”, mid 30’s, medium build, dark hair.
Suspect #2 is unknown, at large.
Vehicle is unknown.

If you have any information on the suspects, please contact District Command Office at (510) 293-7151.

Please be very cautious this Holiday season. There are many scams going on right now. One scam is similar to the last blotter entry. Suspect will fill boxes of T.V.’s and computer with heavy items (such as bricks) and tell you they bought a surplus of these items on sale and are willing to extend the discount to you. By all appearances, the items will look legitimate. Do not be fooled and try to purchase something that is too good to be true.
