Men pose as Foxconn contractors to steal from Mt. Pleasant couple

Posted: Updated:

MT. PLEASANT (WKOW) -- Police say four men posing as Foxconn contractors conned their way into a home near the site of the future plant.

The homeowners in Mt. Pleasant say they're used to construction near their house, so when one man identified himself as a Foxconn worker, they didn't think twice. He told the couple he needed to check their water lines.

That's when the other men snuck into the home and ransacked the bedroom.

"They ended up getting 6 to 7-hundred dollars in cash and a good watch of mine and some other minor jewelry," Lucille Sauder told WISN-TV. 

The couple says they're just glad they weren't hurt.

Police warn people not to let anyone in your house, unless you know them.
