Men posing as police burgle Peterborough home

Police are trying to track down thieves who posed as officers to carry out a burglary in Peterborough on Saturday, 10th October.

Three men claiming to be police officers knocked on the rear door of a property in St Paul’s Road, Peterborough at around 8.20pm.

The victim, a 78-year-old woman, unlocked the door and the men burst in wearing gloves and balaclavas.

The men ordered the pensioner to sit in the living room while they searched cupboards and drawers. They then made off via the back door with a purse containing cash, jewellery and keys.

"This was a particularly frightening incident for the elderly victim.

It is unlikely that police officers or those from reputable companies would knock at the back door of a property. Please be vigilant, ask for identification and if you are still unsure call the police.”

– Detective Constable Kevin Poole, Cambridgeshire Police

Police are appealing for anyone with information to call them on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
