Two men have been arrested by police investigating a distraction burglary on an 80 year old woman in Full Sutton.
A man knocked on her door on Tuesday lunchtime claiming he'd lost his ball in her back garden.
While she was helping him look for it, a second man sneaked in through her front door and took her handbag.
Police were called and chased a car down the A1079 heading towards Market Weighton before making two arrests.
Sergeant Pete Rogers says it's important for people to stay on their guard.
