THREE youths robbed a woman after tricking her by talking about gardening.
The youngsters knocked at the side door of a house in Station Road, Fenay Bridge, at 12.30pm on Thursday.
They asked the occupant, a retired woman, about gardening work.
She went to the back garden with them, then into the kitchen.
One of them followed her into the kitchen and she later realised her wallet had been stolen.
The youths were aged about 13 to 16. One had straight, short, dark hair and was about 5ft 8in.
A second was wearing a fawn-coloured hooded top with a white glove on one hand.
The third was blond, stocky and wearing a blue jacket.
