A distraction burglary has been reported on Chilton Road, Long Crendon at around 12:25pm on Tuesday 23 November. A male called at the property and asked the occupant if he needed any repair work on his mobility scooter. He then asked if the householder would like to sell any of his property. He claimed that he would need to change a £50 note and after the aggrieved has got his wallet out, the offender said he had changed his mind and would call again on Friday. After he left it was discovered that the occupant's wallet had been stolen.
