Boone Police have issued a warning about one person distracting the victim, while the other helps themselves to the victim's unattended belongings. The crafty thieves, according to police, accomplish their distraction in a variety of ways and will use every trick in the book to get inside your home. They may come to the door as a team, pretending to be inspectors, utility workers or sales people for magazines, roofing companies or other home improvements.
