Police appeal over distraction burglar duo

PUBLISHED: 16:30 06 June 2012




POLICE are investigating two men who took part in a distraction burglary yesterday (Tues).

The men knocked on the door of a property in Grange Avenue, Highbridge, at about 3.15pm.

One man distracted the occupant while the other went upstairs and searched the rooms.

A second occupant of the house then returned home and, realising someone may be in the house, went upstairs to find a man hiding in the bathroom.

When rumbled, both men then fled, and the occupants later discovered money had been stolen from the house.

They were last seen on Church Road running towards Burnham.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them on 101.
