Don't Fall For 'Distraction' Burglars
Police warn local people to be careful about workmen
Local police have warned residents to be on their guard about potential 'distraction' burglars who may be operating in the area.
Police have warned about a suspicious vehicle which circulated in the area on 8 October and may have been seen again.
On 7 October at about 5pm a white male, 5' 11" of thin build called at an address in Chiswick stating he was a tree surgeon. He was invited into the garden to give a quote, which was very competitive. The householder then questioned the male about the tree names, but he couldn't answer any questions which aroused suspicion as he purported to be a tree surgeon.
