Bogus Official Warning: Homes targeted in Uttoxeter and Meir

stopchainPolice are urging residents to check the identity of any unexpected callers after two incidents this afternoon. Men claiming to be from the ‘Water Board’ called at the homes of residents in Uttoxeter and Meir. These claims are false and are believed to be men attempting to gain entry to distract the occupants so cash and property can be stolen.

Remember – Stop, Chain, Check and if in doubt call 101.

At this early stage it is unclear if anything has been stolen, however if you have elderly family or neighbours please pass this message to them. If you have any concerns call the police or the utility company concerned.
