Warning Following Potential Bogus Callers In Stockton

Police are appealing for information following potential bogus callers in the areas of Parkfield and Oxbridge in Stockton.

It is believed that two men attended addresses in these areas yesterday, Wednesday 18th January, claiming to be builders and claiming that roof tiles on properties needed replacing and quoting excessive prices to do the work.

The first incident was reported at 1:30pm on Kilburn Road and the second incident was reported at around 8pm on Bromley Road. No money or work has been exchanged.

Officers would always advise vigilance with cold callers and would suggest asking for identification and if necessary calling the company concerned to verify identification.

Any witnesses or anyone with information regarding the incidents or the suspects is asked to contact Sergeant Jim Allen on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
