The Beaufort Police Department is warning of a string of daytime robberies centered on the Mossy Oaks neighborhood and are asking for the public's help.

Specifically the tactic employed appears to be that, "daytime burglars check the house by ringing the doorbell to see if anyone is home. If a homeowner answers the person may say they need directions or come up with another reason they are at the door."

Police are asking that if anyone should come ring your doorbell like this, that you should note the physical description, clothing and direction of travel of the person or persons.

If you believe the incident is notable, call the police department's non-emergency number at (843) 524-2777.
