PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are looking for two men who broke into a home in South Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon.

A man — described by police as 25-35 years old, 6-foot-10 to 6-foot-4 and of heavy build — posed as a construction worker to gain entry to a home in the 2900 block of South Juniper Street around 2:30 p.m.

According to police, the man said he was sent by the building inspector to check the back deck of the house. The resident let the man in and took him outside, where they spoke for five to ten minutes.

While the resident and man were talking, police said another man entered the home and stole jewelry from a second-floor bedroom.
