Police: Thieves use fake construction fliers to target Town and Country homes

TOWN AND COUNTRY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- Investigators say thieves may be using fake construction offers to target homes in west St. Louis County.

According to police, two break-ins along Thornbury Drive last week might be linked to men handing out home repair fliers in the neighborhood.

Investigators said Town and Country residents should call police before contacting companies who advertise with fliers.

Police say the burglaries happened during the day, when thieves figured most residents would be at work. Detectives believe suspects may be driving a red truck or white Camry, but said they think the thieves switch vehicles.

Anyone with information on the break-ins is asked to call Town and Country police at 314-432-4696.
