Woman has purse containing £600 stolen by two men

Two men have been involved in stealing a purse containing £600 during a distraction burglary in Haverhill.

Police said the incident happened at 4.15pm on Friday, September 30, when a man entered the property in Mount Road uninvited and asked the resident for money to undertake some gardening work.

To get rid of him, she gave him £200 but after he had left she discovered that a purse containing £600 had been taken. No gardening work was done.

The man who entered the house is described as white, mid-40s, with short dark hair and wearing a dark Puffa-style jacket and jeans.

Another man stayed outside the property. It is believed the men were driving a white van, possibly a Ford Transit, with a light bar on the roof.
