OAP conned by doorstep caller

Have your say

A PENSIONER’S home was burgled after she was conned into allowing a bogus ‘water board’ official into her home.

The 71-year-old, from Atlantic Walk, Lowedges, opened her door to a man on Friday, between 6.30pm and 6.45pm, and allowed him inside.

While he was inside, a second man sneaked in and stole property.

One of them is described as scruffy, white, aged in his 30s or 40s, and clean shaven.

n Witnesses, anyone who saw anything suspicious or anyone with information about the burglary is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, or Crimestoppers, alternatively, on 0800 555111.
