Recent crime trend of DISTRACTION Burglaries...Be Aware 

News Story

Polk County Sheriff’s Office is providing information regarding a recent trend of “distraction” burglaries that have occurred in your area and across Central Florida.  During these types of burglaries, suspects distract elderly victims outside their residence while a second suspect steals property from with their residence. Suspects typically pretend to be tree trimmers or employed by the city or county.  Please be vigilant and attempt to verify employment for anyone coming to your residence without prior notice. If you have information on these crimes contact Detective Anderson at 863-662-9635.
