Fewer bogus caller offences in Doncaster

Have your say

BURGLARS have tricked their way into the homes of 109 South Yorkshire old folk in the last 10 months - but Doncaster has fewer victims than the rest of the county.

Figures disclosed to The Star reveal 18 such offences were reported in Doncaster between April last year and the start of this week, with a further 26 in Barnsley, 20 in Rotherham, and 45 in Sheffield.

But the number is down on the 134 offences reported over the same period the year before, and the detection rate has risen by eight per cent to 20 per cent.
