Distraction burglary alert

Our local police have issued the following alert:

"At some point between 1.30 and 2.15pm on Tuesday 30 January, an unknown male knocked on the back door of a home in Harescombe. He had gone by the time the elderly resident got there, but then knocked on the front door. He claimed that he had hit their garage with his car and the homeowner went to have a look. No damage could be seen, and when the caller left it was discovered that jewellery was missing, and it seems that another offender has entered through the front door when the resident was at the garage, at the rear of the property"

"The offender was described as being a white male, about 5ft 10in tall, with cropped brown hair. He was clean shaven and spoke with an Irish accent. Please view the attached E-fit of the suspect. If you contact the police about this incident, please quote Reference number: 5218022392"

"If you have any information regarding this incident, contact the Police on 101. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111"
