Hunt for Bogus-Caller

POLICE want to find a bogus-caller who faked her way into a number of Stranraer houses on Monday claiming to be a Council Tax representative.

The fraudster, aged between 20 and 25, is said to have stolen purses, cash and bank cards after gaining entry to at least two homes in the Dick's Hill area of the town between 1.15 p.m. and 2.45 p.m.

A police spokesman said

"The female stated that she was making inquiries about housing and benefits issues.

But once entry had been gained to the houses, various items have been stolen.

"Inquiries with the relevant department reveal that the council did not have officers working in the Dick's Hill area at the time of the incidents".

The female is described as white, aged between 20 and 25 of a slim to medium-build and with mousey brown hair.

At the time of the incidents she was wearing a beige- coloured jacket and brown checked scarf.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to contact them.
