Fake workmen put up false signs and steal paving stones in Eynsford

News Shopper: The fake signs in Riverside The fake signs in Riverside

FAKE workmen have fooled Eynsford residents by putting up false signs and making off with paving stones.

Kent Police are asking for information about the bizarre incident which took place last month in Riverside.

It appears the fraudsters erected pretend signage and then scarpered with the paving stones sometime between November 19 and 20.

Investigating officer PC Robert Sayer, from Sevenoaks District Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “The local council has confirmed there were no works scheduled in the area at the time.

“We have spoken to witnesses who recall seeing men in the area but there could be others who noticed people or vehicles in the area who did not realise they were witnessing an incident which would later be reported as a crime.”

Kent Police have not ruled out a link between this incident and another which reportedly took place in Rochester on November 22.

One man has been arrested and bailed to January 14 in relation to that incident.

Anyone with any information which may assist police with their enquiries is asked to contact Swanley Police Station on 01322 422516 quoting crime report YY/23538/13.

Yep some fly be night builder ( with a rep for dissolved businesses ) buys them off the 'tea leaves' from the caravan club, then employs eastern Europeans for 40 quids or less a day to lay them for some poor old OAP.

If only people would not use 'white van man' builders, here today gone tomorrow.

Police became suspicious when they found out that they worked all day with just one break and finished the job completely before leaving.
