Unfortunately, she had fallen victim to a common scam. This often is to trick older people into allowing access to the property by pretending to be a council official or utility, maintenance worker. To gain entry they supposedly check on some leaking pipes. Meanwhile, the burglar opened the patio doors to allow his accomplice inside. The Finchley house was ransacked as the woman was distracted. A considerable quantity of valuables was stolen, including cash and priceless sentimental items which cannot be replaced.
