“These incidents are extremely troubling, and each has been an example of an unscrupulous offender or offenders taking advantage of their victim’s trusting nature.
“Once again, elderly and vulnerable victims appear to have been targeted and in two instances the offenders have gained access to the property before the householder has even been aware of them.
“ Particularly during this spell of hot weather, I would urge all householders to ensure their doors and windows are kept secure, and that valuable items are not kept on display or close to exits and entrances.”
