Distraction thefts in Daventry town centre
January 8, 2018
Witnesses are being sought after a number of distraction thefts in Daventry town centre.
The thefts happened on Friday, January 5, between 1pm and 3.30pm, when two women pretended to be working for a disabled charity. They approached a number of elderly people asking them to sign a form and make a donation to the charity. As one woman spoke to the victims, the other picked their pockets and stole cash and items from their bags.
The offenders are described as two women with Eastern European accents. One of them may have been wearing a pink bobble hat and both were carrying clipboards.
Anyone with information is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
