Daventry Area Crime -

Police are warning Daventry District residents after Northamptonshire residents have been contacted by ‘fake’ police officers in the space of two days in an elaborate attempt to fraudulently obtain money.

Between Tuesday, March 5, and Wednesday, March 6, a total of eight people reported having received calls from a male purporting to be a police officer from the Metropolitan Police.

Five offences were reported in Kettering, two in Corby and one in Daventry.

The caller used a variety of different names when calling the home telephone lines – although in four of the cases the name DC Morris was used. He claimed to be from Paddington Green Police Station, Hammersmith Police Station, Charing Cross Police Station or New Scotland Yard.
