Detectives have named two men they would like to speak to in connection with a distraction burglary in Farningham.
It follows an incident on Monday, November 27, in which a woman knocked on the door of a property in the High Street, home to a man aged in his 70s. She claimed to have been assaulted and was seeking refuge until a relative arrived.
The woman was invited into the house and began crying and asked for a glass of water. It is reported a white Ford Transit van later pulled up in front of the address and sounded its horn. The woman left the property and entered the van, which then drove off.
After the woman had left, the victim discovered the catch of his front door was up and the door was insecure. A jewellery box containing valuables was found to be missing, believed stolen.
It is believed the van which picked the woman up was also stolen. The previous day a delivery driver reported the theft of his vehicle while he was working in Swanley.
He reported that as he was handing a parcel to customer in Heath Close a person entered the vehicle and drove it away.
Inquiries are ongoing into both the theft of the van and the burglary and officers are now keen to speak to Billy Jeeves and Henry Vincent who they believe may have important information.
