Bloomfield Township Police are warning residents of imposters who posed as water department employees and robbed a home.

Police say on Oct. 4, the suspects posed as Bloomfield Township Water Department employees and convinced the victim to allow them into the house.

While in the house, one of the suspects distracted the homeowner while the other stole multiple pieces of jewelry.

Police say Bloomfield Township employees will always have identification and be readily identifiable as an employee.

"If you ever question the identity of someone indicating they are a Bloomfield Township employee, please contact the appropriate department or the police department immediately and do not allow them inside your home," police say.
