A man, broke into a house in Frampton Cotterell on Monday (February 25) and stole cash from an elderly couple.

The householders disturbed the man in their home at about 9pm – he claimed to be from the police and said there had been a burglary. The couple later found cash missing.

Neighbourhood Inspector Andy Workman said: "Earlier this month we had similar burglaries reported in Almondsbury, Cadbury Heath, Kingswood, Little Stoke, Stoke Gifford and Bath.

"I'd ask everyone to look out for their neighbours, especially if they are frail and elderly, and call 999 straight away if they see anyone acting suspiciously at doors or windows.

"This intruder was concealing his face. Police officers will always have their identification with them, but if you are in any doubt call 101 immediately.

"It is worth making sure you lock up all your doors and windows, close your curtains before it gets dark and set your house alarm as well.

"If you are at all concerned about security for yourself or a neighbour, please get in touch with your neighbourhood team on 101."

The man was described as white, about 5ft 4ins and was wearing a black hat and scarf pulled over his face.

If you have any information which could help police enquiries call South Gloucestershire CID on 101. Alternatively ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
