Handbag stolen in Crosspool doorbell scam

A Crosspool resident who had their handbag stolen from their house this week is warning people to be vigilant.

The person living on Tapton Crescent Road was in their garden with the back door open when the front doorbell rang. There was no-one there when they answered the door but on returning to the garden they saw their handbag had been stolen from inside their back door.

This theft follows reports from the local police at last night’s Open Meeting of washing from three different clothes lines being stolen on one day in the recent warm weather.
