Good day.
This is a community crime awareness message brought to you by PCSO Jad from Horncastle Police NPT. 
We are receiving reports of non-residential premises being targeted.
Person(s) are sometimes purporting to look for painting/decorating or other work.
They generally attend with a newspaper or piece of paper and place this over the item they are looking to steal (phones or purses generally) and creating a distraction, before making off with the property

If you have witnessed, and/or heard anything suspicious, and have information, please immediately call 101, or anonymously talk to Crime Stoppers UK on 0800 555 111.
