Distraction Burglaries in Hillingdon Borough

Distraction Burglaries in Hillingdon Borough
There has recently been a number of distraction burglary offences across West London, including Hillingdon. 
Generally one, or sometimes two, white males in their 20’s or 30’s who are casually dressed have used a number of deceptions to trick their way into people homes so that they can steal. 
They have frequently claimed to be builders and knocked at addresses close to properties which are undergoing legitimate building work and claimed to be working at the neighbours address.
They have also claimed to be plumbers or from the water board investigating a leaking pipe.
The Police strongly advise people not to let strangers into their homes.  If you are not happy with a person who is asking to be let into your home, please speak to a family member or friendly neighbour before letting anyone into your home, even if they appear friendly.  Police would always prefer to attend a false alarm than a burglary.
