Elderly woman burgled
12:29pm Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
AN ELDERLY woman was burgled at her Andover flat.
It happened between 7pm and 8pm on Sunday, 8 September while the 86-year-old woman was at her Weyhill Road home.
She had the rear French doors open of her ground floor flat when she left the living room for a short time and when she returned she noticed that her handbag was missing.
The handbag contained a purse with a small amount of cash inside, paperwork and her great grandchildren’s yoyos. The bag is a navy blue leather-effect with two yellow metal clasps.
Pc Ben Lee said: “This was a horrible crime where an elderly woman has been left feeling extremely vulnerable in her own home.
“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen something suspicious, to contact me.
“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have found this handbag discarded in the local area.”
Anyone with any information should contact Pc Lee at Andover Police Station on 101 or call the charity Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111, where information can be left anonymously.
