Bogus meter reader targets pensioner
POLICE are warning residents to be on their guard after an attempted distraction burglary took place in Wanstrow.
A man knocked on the door of a pensioner and asked to read her meter but she became suspicious as she had recently had her meter read and refused to let the man in.
He walked away and got into what has been described as a "tatty" red Peugeot 205.
The man is described as white, in his mid 50s, of medium build, bald and was wearing dark clothing.
