Bogus NI Water man steals cash


A man claiming to be from Northern Ireland Water has stolen a sum of cash from a house in Portadown.

Around 1pm on Monday, a man claiming to be from NI Water called to a house in Ballyoran Park.

The man was on foot and, after entering the house, he filled basins of water and checked her cupboards. The man left the property a number of times to speak to his colleague although no one else was seen.

The occupant later discovered that a sum of cash had been taken from a handbag in the cloak room.

Police warned people to be wary of bogus callers.
