Burglars who distracted a woman by pretending her wall was bowing escaped with cash and jewellery.
At about 6.45pm on Friday, April 11, a woman aged in her sixties was at home in High Street, Weston Underwood, near Olney, when a man knocked on a window at the back of the property.
He beckoned her outside and said the wall of the house was bowing.
She told him to leave and went back into the house, where she found two men inside. They ran off when challenged.
The victim later found that cash and her mother’s engagement and wedding rings were missing.
The first offender had an Irish accent and was aged in his late thirties or early forties. He was white with pale skin, around 5ft 3ins tall and well built with a dark neatly-trimmed beard. He was wearing a maroon flat cap, a smart shirt and maroon trousers.
The other two offenders were white, around 5ft 9ins tall and both wore light jackets and trousers over a white shirt, which looked like a uniform. One of the men had short spiky brown hair and the other was wearing a hat similar to that of a train driver.
They drove off in a silver Volkswagen Touran with the registration Y40 MES.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Con Serena Bellis from Milton Keynes CID on 101.
