Officers investigated a residential burglary where an unknown suspect "impersonated" a City employee to look for a "snake infestation" at an address on Deborah Dr. While the suspect distracts the victim, an unknown accomplice enters the residence and takes numerous items of jewelry and cash. The victim described the suspect as a Caucasian or Hispanic female, having blonde hair that may have been dyed or possible even a wig. The suspect wore a dark blue hat with the logo "CITY" on it. The suspect was wearing what appeared to be a uniform; a dark green shirt with a logo over the left chest area, and dark green pants. It is important to note that Union City workers carry picture identification cards and if you have any question as to the legitimacy of a City worker call UCPD.
