Police are appealing for information to trace two men who burgled the home of a 91-year-old man in Staple Hill.
They forced the front door of the house in Park Road just before 10pm on Monday October 14.
They told the elderly man that there had been a burglary nearby and that they were checking other properties. While one of them kept the owner occupied, the other searched his bedroom and stole around £150 from a wallet. They then left by the front door. The elderly man was not hurt.
Both burglars are white and aged about 30 and of medium build. One is 5ft 10ins tall and was wearing a grey hat with earflaps and a knee-length coat. The other is 5ft 8ins tall.
Police would like anyone who saw the men, or who saw anyone or anything suspicious in the area at the time, to call them on 101 quoting crime reference number 102621/13.
