Burglary distraction alert

Posted on 12th May, 2015

With work soon to commence on water pipes in Heath Road and the surrounding areas, please advise family, friends and neighbours to be careful.

There have been a number of burglary artifice offences in Kent. All of the offences have two suspects claiming to be from the water board. They mention the need to locate the stop-cock. 

Distraction burglary/artifice is where the offenders trick or dupe the occupant or distract them, allowing the other person they are working with to gain access to the property and commit burglary. The elderly are particularly vulnerable to distraction burglary.

Please be vigilant. Be cautious, representatives from water, gas and electric companies rarely visit without appointments. If you are unsure do not answer the door. If in doubt, keep them out.
