Woman duped by rogue traders on Paringdon Road

ESSEX Police are appealing for witnesses following a rogue trader incident off Paringdon Road, Harlow on Wednesday, November 1.

A man has knocked on the door of a woman’s house claiming to be from a drainage company and stated there is a problem with her drains. The woman has shown the man into the back garden where a second unknown suspect has entered her house. They have conducted a messy search and stolen her purse and cash.

Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to contact PC Anne-Marie Hardingham at Harlow CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Investigating officer PC Anne-Marie Hardingham said, “If a stranger knocks on your door advising that you need work doing to your house, please don’t let them in.

“Ask to see their ID and read any leaflets they have thoroughly before agreeing to have work carried out.

“If you see any suspicious activity in your street please report it to us.”
