An elderly Warwick resident was targeted in a distraction burglary last week.

The incident happened on June 20 in Chesford Crescent.

According to the Warwick Central Safer Neighbourhood Team the resident was approached by a couple acting as gardeners.

Whilst the man spoke to the resident at the back of the garden the woman went into the house and stole more than £200 in cash from a wallet.
