POLICE are appealing for witnesses after men claiming to be from the Forestry Commission stole from an elderly woman in a village near Ashbourne.

On Thursday, April 10 between 2pm and 2.15pm a man wearing a peaked cap knocked on a window of a house on Sidesmill Lane, Norbury. He said he had come to check the trees.

He was described as white, between 30-40 years old and of a stocky build. He was wearing a black peaked cap with a silver capital ‘F’ on the front, a black jacket, black leather gloves, blue jeans and white trainers. He also had a grey beard.

He kept the woman talking outside in the garden. A second man then came into the garden. He was described as white, between 30-40 years old, of a thin build and had a pale grey face. He was wearing a cap and a black jacket.
