Rogue Trader

PC 1501 Ali Palfrey ~ Rogue Traders targeting housholds

Please be aware that there have been two incidents of a rogue trader coming to the door of elderly residents and demanding money for imagined work carried out on their driveways. At approximately 15:00 on  02/01/2017 he approached a resident of Aston Road Chipping Campden, and today, at 11:15 on 03/01/2017, he tried the same thing on Arbour Close Mickleton. The description of the offender is that of a 5ft 6in clean shaven white male in their early forties with dark cropped hair wearing a dark jacket, blue jeans and trainers. It is also believed he may be driving an old style burgundy saloon car. If you have any information that may be of use, please phone 101 and quote Incident 334 of 02/01/2017.

Please ensure your elderly neighbours are aware that this individual is in the area and advise them not to open the door to strangers. Also remind them that, if the person persists, and they are frightened, please phone 999.
