Witnesses sought to attempted distraction burglary

WITNESSES are being sought following an attempted distraction burglary at a pensioner’s home in Tattingstone.

It took place at a house in The Heath at around 12.30pm on September 23 and police have issued an e-fit of a man they want to speak to in relation to the incident.

A man approached a 78 year old man as he returned to his house, stating he was from the water board and needed to check the kitchen taps as a neighbour’s new kitchen was causing problems with the supply.

The man asked for ID and was shown a card, but he remained suspicious and turned the visitor away.

The visitor walked off and met up with a second man in the street before both walked off.
