Police link burglaries
POLICE investigating a distraction burglary against an 89-year-old in Clevedon believe another burglary in the same road may be connected.
On February 1, an elderly woman was duped into letting a man into her Conygar Close home after he claimed to be checking an electrical fault.
He and an accomplice managed to make off with her life savings.
Following the incident, police officers carried out house-to-house enquiries and were told a second property in the cul-de-sac had been burgled while the owner was away.
During this burglary, a Longines gold wrist watch and gold cuff links belonging to a 62-year-old man were stolen.

The watch has a round white face and has a leather strap with an engraving on the back of the watch. It is of great sentimental value as it was a retirement gift from Hawker Siddeley Aviation.
The cuff links are oval-shaped and have the initials RRP engraved on them.
