A MAN accused of tricking his way into a pensioner’s home and stealing his wallet has been remanded in custody.
Hamid Gommari, aged 42, appeared at North Somerset Courthouse in Weston-super-Mare yesterday (Thursday) and was charged with aggravated burglary, two counts of fraud and possession of cannabis.
Magistrates said Gommari must stay in prison until he appears at Bristol Crown Court later this month.
Gommari is accused of gaining access to a 79-year-old man’s home on November 24, before taking the pensioner’s wallet. The pensioner’s bank cards were later used to withdraw cash.
Neighbourhood Sergeant Colin Batchelor said: “I would ask anyone with vulnerable elderly relatives or friends to look out for them.
You may also want to watch:
“Remind them of the importance of keeping doors locked and using the door chain to check on unexpected callers.
“The key message is if you’re unsure, don’t open the door.”
