Suspects pretending to be Foxconn contractors steal jewelry and money from Mount Pleasant home

MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Crooks successfully entered a home in Mount Pleasant Thursday afternoon around 4:30 p.m.

A man came to a house on Highway KR saying that he was a worker working on the water main for Foxconn and that he hit a water pipe and needed to check the water lines. The homeowner allowed the man and a second worker in the house. The two "workers" distracted the homeowners while two other men entered the house and went through the bedroom.

The homeowners called police the following morning to report that money and jewelry had been taken. The suspects left in a cream colored SUV.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Mt. Pleasant Police Department at 884-0454.
