0 4

Another reported “distraction burglary” is under investigation. Bethlehem police say it happened around 12:45 p.m. Thursday at a home on Blessing Road.

The homeowner tells police they were approached by a man in his 40s wearing a t-shirt, vest, gloves and a baseball cap.


That person said they needed to “inspect some lines” in the back of the home and talked over a two-way radio with another, unknown person.

After the suspect left in a white, 4-door sedan, the homeowner discovered cash had been stolen.

Other distraction burglaries have been reported in North Greenbush. Anyone with information on any of these crimes should contact police.
