Rogue trader took £90 for unfinished work after repeatedly targeting home in Trenley Close, Holbury
POLICE are hunting a rogue trader with a broken nose who took £90 payment for work he never completed at a Holbury home.
The unknown man repeatedly called at the address in Trenley Close between 6th December 2021 and 6th January this year offering to carry out odd-jobs.
On one occasion, a 70-year-old local woman handed over the cash for guttering to be cleared, but he left without finishing.
The man was described as white, scruffy looking, with a distinctive broken nose, and wearing a woollen hat.
Officers are urging people to come forward if they have witnessed any suspicious activity as they continue to investigate the incidents.
Those with information should contact the Hampshire force on 101, quoting crime reference number 44220031011, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
