Police: 3 robbers posing as contractors
Nassau County police say three men are posing as contractors, distracting homeowners and trying to rob them.
Marie Taddel, of Albertson, says a man showed up at her Beverly Drive home today and told her he was putting up a neighbor's fence and needed to check her property line. Then, Taddel says, he offered her $50 to buy stones in her backyard.
Taddel says a second man also appeared and was talking to her husband while a third man entered her home. She saw the man, chased him out and called police.
Police say the suspects are responsible for similar incidents in Roslyn Heights and Great Neck.
