There have been two recent distraction burglary incidents in the Skegness area. On 24th February at about 2pm a woman called at an address in Philip Grove claiming to be ill. She asked for a drink of water and proceeded to steal money before making off. Three days earlier (21st) at about 9.30pm a woman conned her way into an address in Cheshire Grove where she stole jewellery. Enquiries are ongoing to try to establish whether the same woman was involved. PLEASE TAKE CARE WHEN ANSWERING THE DOOR AND IF YOU’RE NOT SURE – DON’T OPEN THE DOOR
