   Bogus caller targeting older people    5 March, 2014

We have received this notice from the Histon Police:

We have received a report this morning from about what appears to be a bogus caller targeting older people.  He is going to properties that have solar panels fitted stating that he needs to check the meter and asking the home owner/tenant if they have a step ladder.  He does not offer any form of ID.  He is described as wearing glasses and around 5’ 5” to 6’ no real distinguishing features.  Apparently when questioned he ran off. This incident may also be linked to similar reports in Bassingbourn and Harston over the past few months.
Please be aware of this incident and report anything suspicious to the police.
