Police have issued a warning to homeowners following reports of suspicious activity in Huntingdonshire villages.

Residents in Offord Cluny, Abbotsley, and Great Gransden have reported seeing three men dressed in white coats and driving around in a blue van, claiming to be selling goods door-to-door.

PCSO Richard Braddick said: “The vehicle is being used by three men in white coats who claim to be selling goods, including fish, door-to-door but may in fact be looking for properties to burgle.

“On April 20 we were called to reports of a burglary in Abbotsley. Unknown suspects gained entry to the property and stole items of jewellery. The previously mentioned vehicle was seen in the area shortly before this took place.”

PCSO Braddick said the burglary is investigated, but added that no arrests had yet been made.

Anyone who has any information regarding the van or the burglary should call 101 quoting CF0217260417.
