Warning over rogue Lancaster jewellery traders


November 07, 2019

Police have warned about rogue door-to-door traders in the Bowerham and Scotforth areas of Lancaster.

Worried residents have contacted police about men going door-to-door putting leaflets in letterboxes saying they are looking for buyers of gold and silver jewellery.

The leaflets include no business address so police have warned householders not to let anyone into their properties or hand anything over.

A police spokesman said: "If you have been visited by these males and they have said they are going to call back do not let them in and keep a look out where they go.

"If you have anymore information for us like descriptions of the males and vehicles being used please ring 101 and use log number LC.20191106.0413."
