Distraction burglaries

Post by PRS » Wed Jan 10, 2007 9:07 am

There has been an outbreak (5) of distraction burglaries in the north west of the county over the past two days (8th and 9th January). The miscreants said they were working on the water mains and exercised the usual ruse of distraction and using an accomplice to enter the premises.
No utilities workers should be allowed in your house until you have seen AND CHECKED their identification - by 'phoning their company if necessary. Leave them outside the locked door whilst you do this.
If you have doubts, ask a neighbour or friend to help. If you are seriously concerned then you should ring 999.
