Police hunt for bogus charity collector who stole from an elderly blind woman in Plymouth

Devon and Cornwall Police are hunting for a bogus charity collector who stole money from an elderly blind woman in her Plymouth home.

Officers say the 79-year-old woman was visited on Wednesday by a man who said he was selling items on behalf of a dyslexia charity.

He invited himself in and remained at her home for around 45 minutes, insisting that she buy household products which she did not need.

She eventually gave in and handed over her purse for goods worth no more than £25 but the thief took all of the banknotes from her purse – totalling £150 – before making off from the property.

The man is described as well-spoken with a south east accent.

This is an appalling crime; stealing from an elderly blind woman has to be the lowest of the low. We are appealing to anyone who may have seen this man going door-to-door in the Leigham area on that day or since to come forward and contact police before this man steals from any other vulnerable victim.
