Police further noted that in the recent string of robberies, three to four suspects were dressed as gardeners or landscapers and often wore reflective gear to indicate they were on the premises to work.
The criminals are often seen American-made, late model minivans and SUVs and in some instances did not have any lawn and gardening equipment which can be a dead giveaway for intentions of ulterior motives.
