E-fit released following distraction burglary

Police have issued an E-fit of a man they would like to speak to in connection with a distraction burglary in Walterbush Road, Chipping Norton, last Monday (26/3).

A man distracted an elderly woman by engaging in conversation with her in her garden at 3.45pm. It is believed that two other people entered the house and stole money from her purse which was in a handbag in the living room.
