Burglar forces his way into pensioner's home
A BURGLAR forced his way into the home of a pensioner in her eighties before stealing cash.
The crook knocked at the home of the woman in Raymonds Drive, Benfleet, and told the victim there had been a major water incident.
He then pushed his way past the pensioner, claimed to be looking for the stopcock, and helped himself to cash from the bedroom and lounge.
Police are now hunting the crook.
The burglary happened between 4.45pm and 5pm on Sunday November 3.
