Man steals cash after lying his way into a house in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 27th Nov, 2017

A MAN who tricked his way into a Redditch house last week stole all the cash from the homeowner’s wallet.

Between 1pm and 1.30pm on November 24, the man knocked on the door of the house in Fordbridge Close and claimed that he had come to do some work in the garden.

When the victim let him in and went to open the back door to the garden, the crook stole the cash and quickly made his escape.

The criminal was white, around six feet tall with short dark hair. He was wearing fluorescent trousers and a dark top. Anyone who saw him can call police on 101.
