BICESTER: A burglar with a “large stomach” snatched cash out of an elderly man’s wallet.
Police said the victim invited the thief into his Buckingham Road home on Thursday at 7.55pm as he recognised him as a tree surgeon who had done work for him in the past.
They described the suspect as a white man, aged about 40, about 6ft tall, of a big build and with a large stomach.
Pc Kirsty Morris, of Bicester police station, asked witnesses to call 101 with information.
She said “We would like to hear if anyone in the area has been offered tree surgery work on their gardens.”
