Doorstep crimes alert

Oct 30, 2015

Avon and Somerset Police have issued an alert over a recent increase in  doorstop  crime.

They have had 14 reported incidents in which men have called on elderly and vulnerable people’s homes and either tried to persuade them to have work done or claimed to be from the council or a utility company. In a few cases they have just walked or pushed in when the door was answered or claimed to be working on a neighbour's home.

On some occasions cash has been stolen and in others the men have tried to get cash payments for carrying out unnecessary work. Thankfully in most cases they have left empty-handed.
