BERWICK — Police in Luzerne County said scam artists tricked an older woman into letting them into her home and then stole from the unsuspecting victim.

Officers in Duryea said one of the crooks posed as a water company employee. He then went into the basement with the victim while another burglar rummaged through the upstairs.

Investigators said the thieves got away with cash.

Officers said they spoke to several neighbors who reported a silver or gray colored car in the area over the past few days.

We reported a similar story out of Berwick earlier this week.
