BEAVER TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WYTV) – Police in Columbiana and Southern Mahoning counties are looking for burglars who are breaking into houses while the residents are at home.
On Monday, a man knocked on a woman’s door along W. South Range Road in Beaver Township and told her he was cutting trees down and needed to be shown where the property line was located.
While the homeowner was in her yard, a second thief went into her home and stole her valuables.
This isn’t the only report police in the area have received of the con men. A similar report was taken at a home in Columbiana.
“There is no company that we are aware of or county or township or state organizations that are doing this type of work,” said Lieutenant Eric Datillo, Beaver Township Police Department.
Anyone with information about the men is asked to call police.
