Bogus Caller Burglary In Todmorden

A bogus caller visited an address on Hallroyd Place, Todmorden yesterday morning at approximately 11am stating he was checking for leaks. The elderly resident allowed the man entry and he was shown into the kitchen where he turned on the water tap and checked the pipes.

It is believed that during this time a second person entered the home, via the unlocked door, carried out a search and removed a quantity of jewellery from the bedroom.

The males then left the address, 2nd male unseen by the victim.

House to house enquiries were carried out and vague descriptions of two men, both white males wearing hi vis jackets were obtained. CCTV enquiries have also been undertaken but with negative result. An area search was carried out for the males but they were not located.

Enquiries are on-going and the victim is being supported.
