Theft & Bogus Callers – Kenilworth

Kenilworth residents are advised:

Bogus callers have started operating in the area with an incident at a property in Leyes Lane, Kenilworth. The individuals involved impersonated Virgin Media personnel using a what was believed to be a fake ID card. They suggested they needed to pick up old Virgin Media equipment, the householder unsuspectingly allowed them into the house. While nothing of significant value was taken they were able to see the contents inside the property.

Please DO NOT let doorstep callers into your home or anyone that calls at your house either unannounced or as a result of a phone call you were not expecting.

  1. I witnessed the removal of charity bags in Caesar Road on Wednesday 17 March at approximately 8.15am. The vehicle was a blue VW Touran, the first part of the registration number was VX05. It was not until the WNAA charity vehicle arrived later in the afternoon that I realised what had happened and notified the driver of the vehicle.
