West Norfolk residents reminded to not release any security information about their homes following reports of three more bogus telephone calls in the area.

Two residents in Snettisham and one in Dersingham received calls yesterday morning (Wednesday 22 January) from someone claiming to be from an alarm company working on behalf of the police.

The caller asked about security measures at the home and offered to visit the property to discuss crime prevention methods.

All the calls came from a withheld number.

Officers would advise residents to not give out any details about their home security, either via the phone or in person, to unexpected callers. If someone visits your home always ask to see identification.

Residents are urged to report anything suspicious to police using the non-emergency number 101 – if a crime is in progress always dial 999.
