Exmouth police have received two reports of suspicious activity

The incidents took place some time between the end of January and the 2nd February In Brixington Lane and Elmfield Crescent.

A female has knocked on the door of an elderly resident purporting to be a plain clothed police officer and asked him about his CCTV system. The male invited the female into his house, when she realised it wasn't working she left the property shortly after.  

The female is described as white 5'6-5'8, wearing a navy/dark suit and well spoken with no distinguishable accent.

The second resident in a road close by randomly found a woman in her kitchen.  She was wearing a plastic apron and a dark/navy short waist jacket. When challenged the female stated she was a carer and promptly left the property

The female is described as being in her 30's, slim build with an Eastern European accent.

No items have been stolen from either property.

It is likely there may have been more incidents that have not been reported to police (possibly because residents are not even aware someone has been in their home)

If you have any information regarding these or similar incidents, please email exmouth@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk

Call 999 if an incident is happening at the time.
