Police are urging people to help trace a man allegedly touting for work in Newport Pagnell.
Ally Gillian, 24, is currently subject to a Protection of Harassment order, which prevents him from approaching individuals and residential properties asking for money for work or offering to complete work.
A woman in her 40s heard somebody try to open the door handle of her house on Ousebank Street, Newport Pagnell. She then spoke to a man at her rear gate who asked if she had any work.
The woman directed him towards a local business and the man then left on a bicycle. Nothing was stolen.
Investigating officers would like to speak to Ally Gillian, who is believed to frequent Bancroft, Woolstone, Great Linford and Wolverton.
