Information sent on behalf of Humberside Police

Suspicious circumstances reported in your area-BOGUS TRADER

Dear Residents,

Log 102 of 24/10/19 refers to a report of a bogus trader operating in the HIGHTHORPE CRESCENT and surrounding areas. Description: 1x white male, stocky build, early 30s, short dark hair, local accent. No VRM or make/model of the car noted but our informant states the male has been in the area previously. This male was seen around 1200hrs, once challenged he left the area at speed.

Could we remind our residents that all Trades Persons carry Identification cards and these should be displayed.
Get several quotes for works you may want doing around your home.
Do not let cold callers into your home.
Arrange appointments from a registered Trades Person.

Please report any suspicious persons to our 101 service.

Thank you.
Community Team, Knoll Street Police Station.
