If con-men had a criminal guidebook, posing as a utility worker to gain entry into a location is probably chapter one. On Monday, March 18, a man posing as a utility worker entered a private school on Lexington Ave. under the guise of checking on the school's water. When the man, described as a white man, 5'4", 150lbs, left, school officials reported an iPhone and a Toshiba laptop computer, valued at $941, were missing. School officials reported they don't routinely ask people for ID upon entering the school. Police computer experts traced the location of the laptop computer to an address on Southern Blvd. in the Bronx.
