‘Not sure? Don’t open the door’ is the message from Leicestershire Police following an increase in distraction burglaries across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Not all burglars break into your home, some try to trick or con their way in. Known as distraction burglars, or bogus callers, they will try to mislead you or distract your attention to get into your home and steal your money or valuables. Perpetrators are targeting vulnerable people and they will knock on the door and state that they are from a utility company, working next door and that they need the victim to check something. When left at the door, purses and other items are being stolen. Please see links below and attachment.
