"At approximately 11.00am on Thursday 2nd October, an elderly

resident of Audlem was the victim of a distraction burglary. The offender

posed as an official and gained entry to the house, then made a search and

took property, leaving the victim very distressed.

"Please remember to use a door chain and to challenge all officials to

produce proper identification. If you are still not completely satisfied

that the caller is who they say they are, then please ask them to call again

after having first made an appointment. No genuine caller will object to

these safeguards.

Stay safe."

Ken Maple — Audlem Police Officer
