E-fit released of Portslade distraction burglar

11 January 2013

Police have released an E-fit of a man they would like to speak to following a distraction burglary in Portslade.
 
The incident happened on 18 October last year in Newtimber Drive when the 82-year-old woman opened her door to a man who was selling cards and calendars at about 4.30pm.
 
He then distracted her by asking for a glass of water, and after he'd left the victim discovered that £50 was missing from her purse.

A police spokesperson said: "The man claimed his name was Jimmy and we are releasing this image in the hope that someone may recognise him. Distraction burglary is a dispicable crime, with offenders praying on some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. If anyone has any information we would ask them to call police on 101, quoting serial1455 of 18/10/12."
