Police have released an e-fit image of a man they would like to speak to following a distraction burglary in Haverhill.
Officers were called to a house in Sorrell Walk after receiving reports an elderly woman has been targeted by thieves.
On Wednesday November 8, around early to mid afternoon, the victim received a call at the door from a man claiming there was a water leak.
He asked to come in so he could access the kitchen tap to allow dye to run through it.
While the victim spoke to the suspect, it is thought another suspect sneaked upstairs and stole a quantity of jewellery concealed in a Sainsbury’s shopping bag.
