Distraction burglary in Hawthorne Avenue, Hengoed

We’re appealing for information following a distraction burglary which took place at around 1.15pm on Friday 1st June 2018. The burglary took place on Hawthorne Avenue in Hengoed.

The victim was at home when two men knocked on his door saying that they needed to check the meter and also for gas. One of the men then led the victim to the back garden to look at a man hole. The other man stayed in the house, closed the curtains and then carried out a search of the property.
