Officers are appealing for information after an 83-year-old man was reportedly the victim of a distraction burglary in Uppingham.
Around 6.50pm on Thursday 13 May it was reported that a man claiming to be a salesman called at a property on Cedar Close.
He was let into the property and offered a cup of a tea and some cake by the occupant. While this was being prepared, £300 was taken from the occupant’s wallet.
The man reportedly then made an excuse and left the property before driving away in a silver car.
He is described as in his 20s, around 5’7, clean shaven, with a stocky build, brown hair and a scar on his right arm.
Detective Constable Sam Bates said: “This incident took place in a residential area in the early evening when people are likely to have been coming and going.
“We believe the man described had previously visited the property.
“We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the man or the silver car in the area at the time, or anyone who may have captured the man or the car on CCTV or dash cam.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 21*263750.
