[ARCHIVED] Ruse Burglaries in Deer Park

The Village is urging everyone to be on alert.  Several residents have been victims of ruse burglaries.  Someone recently approached victims in Deer Park, and were offering to"de-ice" their driveway and gutters.  While they were distracting the residents outdoors, an accomplice entered the house and stole  large amounts of jewelry and cash.


The Lake County Sheriff Department is warning residents to not allow unknown individuals in or around their home unless it is a scheduled appointment.  The ruse burglaries seem to be targeting older residents.  Please be a good neighbor and keep an eye out for suspicious activity.


Do not hesitate to call 911 if you are unsure of a person.  Our Deer Park Deputies are always glad to check out the situation at any time to keep our residents safe.
