Warning after distraction burglary spate

 

Elderly and vulnerable residents are being warned to be vigilant after a spate of distraction burglaries in Nottinghamshire.

Nottinghamshire Police officers are advising them not to answer the door to any unexpected callers and report anything suspicious.

We are also urging people living near to elderly residents to keep an eye out for their neighbours.

It comes after five distraction burglaries between October 14 and 18, when previously there had been just once since the start of September.

The offences have happened in Forest Town, Lowdham, Cotgrave, Ollerton and Mansfield, and in each one the burglars have used similar distraction techniques, claiming to be doing official work in the area before they or an accomplice steal from their homes. The recent cases have involved people claiming to be from the council or the water board, doing gardening or guttering work, and even checking homes after a gas explosion.

The message is simple - if you are not expecting someone coming to your home, don't answer the door. Official callers will always make an appointment in advance.

If anyone sees anything suspicious, please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

Message ends.

Inspector Nick Butler

Mansfield District Commander
