Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

It appears that an attempt today 17th October was made to obtain money from a vulnerable person which resides on Winchester Street in Overton. It was suspected that persons unknown may have tried to encourage resident to part with money for roof work that didn’t need to be done. Thanks to very observant resident they have interjected and prevented and crime from taking place. The person that was believed to be responsible has soon got into a white Astra estate and driven off with 4 other males inside.
Please take the time to look out for vulnerable residents that live in your area, that may be at risk of being encouraged to undertake work on their property which might not need the work doing. If you suspect any concern or wrong doing call the Police on 101 with your concerns.
