The Argus: Police hunt pair who stole from elderly Bexhill couple Police hunt pair who stole from elderly Bexhill couple

Police are searching for these two bogus callers who stole from an elderly couple.

The pair targeted the couple’s home in Peartree Lane, Bexhill on January 16.

They pretended to be police officers and told the victims, who are both in their 90s, that they were doing security checks and asked where valuable items were kept.

They took away jewellery, money and other items of value to their car as they claimed they needed to take photographs of them. They never returned.

The male suspect is described as a white, 6' and was wearing a waterproof jacket with a fur lined hood which he had up throughout.

The female was about 5', and had bobbed brown hair and was wearing a grey coat with a belt and a backpack.

Detective Constable Paul Casey said; "If you saw this pair or have any other information that will help, please contact us on 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting serial 1321 of 16/1.”

Alternatively call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

It makes me so angry when scum like this pick on the defenceless.

I do hope this poor couple recover from this ordeal.

What a despicable act on these elderly people, bought up in an era of trust. You cannot trust anyone these days.

A hateful, dispicable crime. I hope the police catch this couple swiftly and that they get the punishment that they deserve - probably a forlorn hope more's the pity.
