‘Workers' in Bright Colors Burglarize Philadelphia Home

Two men dressed in fluorescent work vests worked their way into a Philadelphia home and made off with a slew of personal items.

Surveillance images released by Philadelphia Police Tuesday show the men in action around 1:50 p.m. on June 3 at a home along Pilling Street near Orthodox Street in the city’s Frankford section.

You see one of the men – wearing a green hard hat and bright yellow hoodie – knock on the door while his accomplice in an orange work vest and white hard hat slowly moves along a driveway while appearing to talk on a cellphone.

After waiting a brief period – as people walk by on the sidewalk, you see the man in yellow climb around into a garden. The man then entered through a second-floor bedroom window and made off with several personal belongings, said police.

The two men then fled the area, said investigators.

Anyone with info or who recognizes the "workers" is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
