June 9th, 2014

The victim, a former Grenadier Guard, was at home on Friday morning when a man posing as a water company official conned his way inside, claiming he was checking the water pressure in the area.

The victim, who has not been named, served in the Grenadier Guards during the Second World War and saw action in Italy and North Africa.

He was said to be extremely upset by the theft particularly coming on the anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy.

Police are urging anyone with information to contact police via 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Officers are also warning the elderly and vulnerable to be on their guard for bogus callers.
