Rogue Traders In Newport East


Wednesday 20th Mar 2019


We are appealing for information following a number of reports of rogue traders operating in neighbourhoods to the east of Newport.

Individuals, posing predominantly as window cleaners, have allegedly been targeting elderly residents, demanding money for work they haven't done and becoming aggressive if questioned.

Incidents have taken place in the Beechwood and Victoria wards, including Harrow Road, Windsor Road, Corelli Street and Corporation Road over recent weeks.

Officers believe a number of individuals may be carrying out this activity and may be acting as a group.

Please do not answer the door to anyone that you do not recognise.

If you have any information relating to these incidents, please call Gwent Police on 101, quoting reference number 436 of 07/01/19. Alternatively, direct message us on Facebook or Twitter, or you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
