Appeal after conmen take £200 from 72-year-old man in Burntwood

Conmen have stolen £200 from an OAP in Burntwood.

The tricksters approached a 72-year-old man outside the HSBC bank at Sankey’s Corner in Chase Terrace on November 3 at around 1.20pm and asked for change. However, he later discovered that £200 was missing from his wallet.

The conmen are also believed to have taken £10 from a woman using the same method at the Co-op at Swan Island just an hour earlier.

The offenders are described as having Eastern European accents. One of them had a beige-coloured coat and was heavily built with dark hair and glasses. The other was thin with black hair.

Anyone with information can call Burntwood Police on 0300 123 4455 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
