DETECTIVES are urging pensioners to be on their guard for doorstep callers after “cowardly” conmen stole an engagement ring from an elderly woman.
The men, believed to be in their 30s, called at the 94-year-old’s house saying they were from the water board.
The woman was able to give police descriptions of the men, which police hope will be recognized by members of the public.
“They told her they were from the water board, and that there was a problem with the pressure in the street,” said Det Con Claire Beach from Northwich Police.
“They asked if they could come inside and check her water pressure.”
“This was a cowardly crime where the perpetrators preyed on a vulnerable individual, and we are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen males in the area on this day fitting the descriptions,” said DC Beach.
