Police Message-Bogus officials

Bogus officials
Although the primary function of this blog is to chart the conservation work associated with the Wom Brook in Wombourne, a message received from Staffordshire Police this afternoon merits inclusion on this site.

At 12:10 today, 2 white males in their 50s, described as having dark hair, and speaking with local accents, visited a Featherstone property claiming to be from a boiler repair company. During the 10 minutes they spent in the property, cash was stolen from a locked cupboard.

Staffordshire Police are keen to remind us not to allow strangers into our homes-unless by prior arrangement, and before granting admittance to service engineers, builders or officials, we are reminded to ask for proof of their identity.

Ray Jones, Police Neighbourhood Watch liaison officer, stated
‘don’t be tempted to open the door to just anyone. If you see or suspect anything remotely suspicious, phone 999, and ask for Staffordshire Police’.
