Distraction burglary

Money was stolen during a distraction burglary in South Normanton at the weekend. An 86-year-old man was visited in his home on Carter Lane East by a man who claimed to be offering his services as a builder at around 1.30pm on Saturday afternoon. On Monday the pensioner realised that money was missing from his home and police believe it was taken during the visit. The visitor is described as a white male, in his 50s, thickset, and around 5ft 10ins tall.
