Bot

An elderly woman had her purse stolen on Boxing Day after being asked for a glass of water in an alleged distraction burglary.

An investigation was launched by officers at Northumbria Police after a report was made on December 26 of an alleged burglary at the home of an elderly woman on Disraeli Street, Blyth.

The alleged victim reported that a man had knocked on her door asking for a glass of water – but later discovered her purse and a couple of other items were missing.

Police believe the man had attempted to disguise his identity using a coat, scarf and glasses.

Christopher Beaney, 40 from Lonsdale Avenue, Bebside, was later arrested and charged with burglary.

He appeared at Bedlington Magistrates’ Court on December 28 where he pleaded not guilty to the offence and is next due to appear at Newcastle Crown Court on January 25.
