Beware of distraction burglaries. From the Monrovia Bears group on the Nextdoor network:
"Today we were burglarized by being distracted by one man while another ransacked the house. Beware of a man posing to do work on a power pole in your backyard to distract you. Also, they took mainly cash and jewelry but they took my husband's ashes by mistake. The ashes are in a plain black, wooden box (12"x12"x5")."
