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.

Anyone with information can call Nassau Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244 TIPS.
