Thieves pretended to be house buyers

In doing so they were able to gain access to the house where the female member of the pair distracted the elderly house owner whilst her male accomplice checked the cupboards for valuables.

When the house owner became suspicious and wanted to call the police they both fled.

The woman is described as being about 30 years old, 1.75m tall with very long black hair.  The man is also described as being around 30 years old, but with short black hair.

Cash and jewellry were stolen.
