Witness appeal following distraction burglary in Byfleet
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a distraction theft in Byfleet yesterday afternoon (3 February).
Two male suspects knocked on the door of a house in Oyster Lane at around 1pm claiming to be collecting scrap metal and asked if they could take some disused radiators from the front garden.
While one of the suspects was loading the radiators into their white van, the other took the elderly victim to the rear garden to see if there was any other scrap. In the meantime, the suspect at the front went into the house and stole £500 in cash. They then both left the property in the white van.
The first suspect has been described as aged around 20/21 years old and about 5’8” tall. He had short, dark hair, was clean shaven and wearing a white jacket with tight tracksuit trousers.
The second suspect was also described as slightly shorter than the first and of a stocky build. He was in his early 20’s and was also clean shaven.
We are looking to speak to anyone who may have witnessed something in the area or has any further information which could assist us with our investigation.
