Bogus bobby steals cash

Have your say

A BOGUS police officer conned his way into a house and stole cash from a woman by claiming there had been a burglary in the area.

The trickster approached the 59-year-old outside her house on Derby Road, Old Tupton, and said he was investigating a break-in.

She invited him into her home and while she got him a glass of water he stole her money.

Anyone with information about the incident at 4.30pm on Wednesday should call 0345 1233333.
