A BURGLAR conned his way into the Suffolk home of an 82-year-old woman and stole her handbag.
The theft happened in Dennington, near Framlingham, at about 3.40pm on Tuesday.
The woman was sitting at the front of her home when a man approached the house. He told her there were two boys in her back garden and that she should take a look.
The woman locked her front door and went to the back of the property but then noticed the man standing at the side of her home. As she went further down the garden she turned to see the man going into the house.
