Oak Brook police are investigating a ruse burglary that happened Saturday at a home in the western suburb.
About 3 p.m., the residents in the 100 block of Concord Drive were approached by a man who said he was working for a next-door neighbor, Oak Brook police said in a release.
He persuaded them to come outside to see something in the yard, while an accomplice went inside and took cash and jewelry, police said.
Witnesses said the suspects were talking to each other in a foreign language over a cellphone or walkie talkie, police said.
The first man is described as a white man with olive skin, about 5-foot-5 and 60 years old, police said. A second suspect is described as a 25-year-old man about 5-foot-8 with stubby facial hair. A third person was driving a black and tan SUV.
Police are cautioning residents to remain vigilant when people claim to be working in the area, and to report any suspicious activity to police.
Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to contact police at (630) 368-8702.
