Gardaí issue 'strange callers' warning
GARDAÍ IN Wexford have appealed to the public to be mindful of strangers approaching their front door. Gardaí have reported a rise in the number of 'distraction' burglaries taking place recently.
A Wexford Sergeant said that he has come across several cases whereby thieves are approaching a front door and claiming to be from an electricity supplier simply to gain entry to the property. In another case it is reported that a woman approached a house and claimed that she needed to use the toilet which allowed her to enter the house to steal belongings.
Gardaí have urged the public to be vigilant and exercise caution if they are approached by any strangers at the front door as this type of crime is on the rise in Wexford.
