Police are appealing for witnesses after two elderly females were allegedly robbed.
At 10.15am on Friday 21st February 2014 two elderly females were approached by a white female, approximately 30 years old, who asked if they had dropped a £5 note in the Sainsbury’s car park in Taplow.
The alleged offender waved the £5 note and asked the elderly women to check their handbags. Later the two elderly females discovered their credit cards were missing from their handbags and money had been taken from their accounts.
Police as stating that this is not the first time such an incident has come to their attention and are asking residents not to open handbags or purses if approached by anyone asking if they have dropped money in a car park.
