10:05am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
POLICE in Dorchester are appealing for witnesses after a woman was burgled in her own home.
The incident happened last Thursday in Acland Court in Linden Avenue at around 4pm.
The occupier had been asleep and awoke to find the front door open and a man ringing the doorbell.
He didn’t speak to the victim but kept pointing at a folder in his hand.
The victim told him to go away and when he left shut the door, police said.
A short while later she realised £40 had been taken from her handbag and drawers in a sideboard opened.
Officers would like to speak to a man who is described as white, 5’4 tall, between 40 and 50 years of age with short black hair, clean shaven and wearing a short-sleeved blue shirt.
Inspector Steve Marsh of Dorchester Police said: “It is possible that this man may have been genuine and delivering catalogues. We would like to speak to him and urge anyone with information to contact us.”
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police on 101, quoting crime number 32553.
