BOGUS callers who trick their way in to the homes of the vulnerable are being hunted by police.

Operation Manhunt is the team at Hertfordshire Constabulary dedicated to catching distraction burglars and keeping residents safe in their homes.

Detective superintendant Mark Drew, leader of Operation Manhunt, said: "These distraction burglars or bogus callers trick their way into the homes of the most vulnerable members of our communities. These are despicable crimes and will not be tolerated in the county, we will use every resource available to track down those who commit these offences.

"Thankfully levels of this type of crime are relatively low and Hertfordshire remains a safe county to live and work. However we are asking all residents to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities or vehicles they see, particularly in areas where elderly people live."

If a crime is in progress call 999 or if you have any information about these crimes, call Hertfordshire Constabulary on 0845 3300 222.
