Police appeal for witnesses after distraction burglary near Burnham

Witnesses are being sought to a distraction burglary in a village near Burnham-On-Sea on Wednesday (October 24th).

The incident occurred in the Churchlands area of Mark at around 3.30pm when a man visited a property and offered to do gardening work and then asked to see the back garden.

He gained entry to the property and later that day the victim discovered her purse was missing.

The suspect is described as a white man, in his early to mid 30s with short, curly dark brown hair.

Police spokesman Martin Dunscombe told "We are investigating the incident and would like to speak to anyone who saw the man in the neighbourhood that day or knows the person responsible."

Anyone with information should call PC Holdsworth at Taunton Police by calling the non-emergency police number 101.
