Homeowner foils burglars posing as Minneapolis city workers


A nosy homeowner foiled the plan of three would-be burglars with a taste for theatrics last week.

A Minneapolis woman came home to find the three men decked out in orange vests and carrying around clipboards, according to KARE-11. When asked, they told her they were from the city's water department.

But when the homeowner started getting a little too nosy, one of the supposed city workers realized their cover was blown.

According to KARE-11:

She asked more questions and police say one of the men pulled out a gun. The woman got back in her car and drove away. The suspects, who police say were clearly not city workers, took off on foot.

You can't trust anyone these days.
