PHOENIX – A father and son duo is accused of targeting elderly victims in a series of burglaries.

The Phoenix Police Department Document Crimes Detectives are looking for information on two suspects who have targeted elderly victims in several burglaries in Phoenix and at least one in Tucson. They have been identified as 30-year-old George S. Gregg and 60-year-old David Gregg, Sr.

Police say the men gain entry into the homes of the victims by saying they were a father and son team identifying themselves as either roofers, landscapers, painters or handymen.

One of the men reportedly asked to use the restroom while the other man distracted the homeowners. The man who was supposed to be in the restroom allegedly stole items such as jewelry, wallets and checkbooks.

Once the suspect had stolen the valuables the two suspects left the home. They were both booked into a Maricopa County jai in April.

Anyone with information on these men is asked to call Phoenix police at (602) 534-5950 or 480-WITNESS.
