Archant

A woman had her television meter taken in a distraction burglary in Ipswich yesterday evening

The incident happened in Rope Walk between 6.30pm and 7pm.

Two men knocked at the door of an elderly woman and stated that they were from an electrical company to look at her television meter.

One of the men entered the property, returning to a van outside a number of times. He took with him the television meter box and left.

A friend within the property then stated he heard another man within the property.

The man who took the meter box is described as a white man, thirties to early forties in age, approximately 5’6” tall and of a large build. He had short brown hair and was wearing blue jeans, a short sleeved t-shirt, thick woollen gloves and a head-torch attached to a headband.

The other man is described as white.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call at Ipswich CID on 101.

  • It's an old idea from the states from the 60s. You are hiring a tv on a pay as you watch thing. You literally fill the meter with cash to keep viewing. Prehistoric.
