NEWBERRY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Newberry County Sheriff's Office released a composite drawing on Monday after several burglaries where two men pretended to be utility workers.

According to a release from the sheriff's office, one of the men is between the ages of 43 and 47, 5'9" tall, with medium brown hair and weighs 200 pounds.

Deputies said the men were driving a reddish or orange pickup truck with a generator in the back. The Newberry County Sheriff's Office said the two men, who were  dressed in some kind of uniform and wearing vests, went to a house on the Laurens and Newberry County line and falsely claimed to be there to check the electrical lines.

The Newberry sheriff's office also advised residents:

If you should see this vehicle or if someone approaches your home call 911 immediately. Do not let anyone in your home unless you know them or have called them or you have verified their identity. Do not be lulled into believing them because they are wearing an official looking uniform or equipment or driving an official looking vehicle. Government or utilities do not offer one time deals or services based on quick decisions. Notify local law enforcement as soon as possible with as much information as possible about the criminals.

Anyone with information about the incidents or the suspects should call the Newberry County Sheriff's Office at 803-321-2222 (Case# 13-12097.)
