SHOP keepers in the county are being urged to remain vigilant after thefts in the Buckden and Wyton areas.
At about 3.35pm on Wednesday August 22, two women entered Huntingdon Garden and Leisure in Banks End, Wyton, and stole £110. A scam was used involving changing of money, commonly referred to as ringing the changes.
On Thursday, August 16, between 4.30-5.30pm it is believed that the same two women tried the same scam in G Day and Son butchers, Buckden. When the scam was unsuccessful they stole a charity box.
The two women are described as aged between 20 and 30. One wore a dark coloured veil over her hair and body. The second wore a green veil. Both veils covered the women down to their waist. The first woman spoke broken English to the shop assistant and another unknown language to her accomplice.
