Woman, 90, targeted by bogus workmen

Police are appealing for information after two bogus workmen stole a 90-year-old woman's purse in Perth.

The men turned up at the victim's address in Feus Road between 16:00 and 17:00 on Thursday offering gardening services.

It was noticed a short time later that a handbag had been stolen containing a purse and bank cards.

Police said one of the men was in his mid 20s, of thin build with short light fair hair.

He was wearing a full-length beige waterproof jacket and light-coloured trousers.

The other suspect was short, of stocky build, and wore dark clothing and a waist-length waterproof jacket.
