A couple of con artists are targeting elderly homeowners on Long Island. The men burglarized two homes on Tuesday in North Bellmore and Massapequa Park.

Investigators say one man gained the trust of the homeowners, claiming he was a county worker who needed to inspect their trees.

As he distracted the victims, his partner went inside the homes and looted their bedrooms.
