The alarm has gone out in Uckfield again about deception thieves being spotted in town shops.
All Sorts owner James Anderson said he received a warning about the tricksters who try to ‘con traders out of money’ when doing transactions.
He has posted a warning on his Facebook page.
Distraction thieves were last in action in Uckfield in June when they stole money from three shops, Pepenbury, the Uckfield Preservation Society shop and Hartfields Produce Store.
