Officers investigating a Swanley distraction burglary in which the suspects posed as policemen have renewed their appeal for information.

The victim, a woman in her 70s, has helped produce a computer generated image of one of the burglars in order to find the three men involved.

On the evening of June 17 two men convinced the victim they were police officers to gain entry to her home in Elm Drive, Swanley.

They proceeded to empty her drawers and steal a number of items, including her purse.

They even asked the victim to remove her jewellery but she refused.

One was white and about 5ft 4in in height and a representation of the other is shown in the e-fit released by police. The victim believes a third man waited in the car outside.

Anyone with any information should contact Kent Police Detective Constable Natalie Gillette on 01622 604372 , quoting crime reference YY/12089/14.

Alternatively you can contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
