Please be advised of suspicious activity in Shalbourne.
Two white males speaking with foreign accents knocked at an elderly person’s door claiming they were from the water board. When the home owner questioned them further the males left. Nothing was taken on this occasion however we would urge residents to be vigilant and report such activity to police. If when reporting persons are still at the given location please use 999 - for all other reports please report via the 101 asking for Wiltshire police in the first instance.
We would like to remind residents to be cautious when answering the door to 'cold callers'. Checking id is fine but we also advise that the Yellow Pages/Thomson Local are used to contact head office rather than any telephone numbers printed on the id card.
