PREVIOUS MESSAGE:


Residents,


Just to make you aware of two females who are in the area claiming to be fundraising for a deaf school in the area. These females were both involved in a burglary in the Wickham Avenue area last week claiming to be fundraising for the same thing. Please see details below as per PCSO 527 Broadwell. This was sent to myself on Thursday:


Two girls that are going around the villages last seen in Micklefield today but were in Boston Spa yesterday on Wickham Avenue( crime reference *428245 refers)


The two females are purporting to collect funds to build another deaf school.


The taller and older female spoke for the shorter younger female as the shorter one was supposedly deaf and could not speak.


The taller one would ask for the shorter one if she could use the toilet (especially if the occupants were elderly) and she would then go into the bedrooms to steal jewellery etc

Female descriptions

1, Female, white approx. 18 – early 20s years 5’ 9 – 5’ 10” slim build, dark brown hair tied in a ponytail speaks with a local accent, wearing ripped jeans, carrying a dark coloured shoulder holdall (satchel type)

2 Female, darker complexion possibly mixed race, approx. 16 – 17 years 5’1”- 5’ 2” Slim build, long mousey brown hair pocked facial skin wearing jeans light coloured shirt/blouse with blue gillet, white trainers

Both females were carrying clip boards


If anyone is approached by these females please report to West Yorkshire Police asap on 999 as potentially these females are suspects for burglary or if just a sighting please report either on 101 or via our webchat service on the West Yorkshire Police website.


Thank you for all your help in advance.
