Appeal for witnesses following burglary in Aylesbury

Alert message sent 28/05/2019 11:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident of burglary.

At around 7.35am on Saturday (25/5) the victim, a 69-year-old woman was in a property on Bedgrove, Aylesbury when an unknown man knocked on her door.

The offender informed the victim that the water in the property needed to be turned off but did not provide a name or company details.

He gave the victim confusing instructions on how to turn the water off before eventually asking if he could come in and show her. Once inside the victim asked the offender for ID which he did not provide but said that his van was parked down the road.

He then instructed the victim to fill pots and pans with water as it would be off for a few days. Whilst she was doing this, the man left the kitchen.

When the victim realised the offender was gone she checked the house and then saw him walking down the road towards Jansel Square shops.

The victim realised shortly after that a handbag containing cash and various bank cards was missing.

The offender is described as a white male in his mid-forties and of stocky build. He had a long face and was clean shaven. He was wearing a flat cap, a dark blue jumper and dark trousers.

Anyone with any information about this incident should call the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference ‘43190157134’ or make a report online.

Alternatively, information can be reported anonymously through independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
