This week’s Banbury Guardian warns of the rise of doorstep traders and the link to burglaries.
A Horley resident recently had an incident of a guy trying to sell items from a bag on his shoulder. He said he was selling goods as he was on a new scheme helping to rehabilitate ex offenders. The police are saying many of these doorstep traders have fake ID’s and they are just scouting round the villages for vulnerable properties or people.
It is recommended that you report this type of non emergency activity to the Thames Valley Police on 101. See the new Village Alerts page for all previous notices.
