£400 stolen from Carshalton pensioner on his own doorstep
A 77-year-old man had £400 stolen on his own doorstep.
The pensioner allowed the thief, who pretended to be visiting to check his pension book, into his house in Middleton Road, Carshalton, on Friday, September 21.
The elderly man had the money in his hand as he produced his pension book when it was taken by the doorstep caller who then left the address.
