Jacksonville homeowners: Thieves posed as Jehovah’s Witnesses
Oceanway neighbors tell Action News Jax that thieves have been posing as Jehovah’s Witnesses and breaking into their homes.
The victims said it’s all an act to scope out your property — only to come back and steal from you.
Cedar Bay Road is a quiet, spread-out community. One of its residents, Ronald Gerdick, said several burglars recently hit his guest house.
“[They] drive down the driveway and if someone comes out, they hand them a flier [saying] ‘We are Jehovah’s Witnesses’,” Gerdick said. “And if no one is there, then I guess they continue with their break-ins.”
