POLICE have issued two efits of men they want to trace following two burglaries.

Two men broke into the homes of two elderly victims in the same set of flats in Paynton Road in St Leonards on Friday (December 14).

At around 6pm two men managed to get into Silverdale flats and break into one flat with keys which were stored in the key safe outside the door.

While inside the property they managed to convince the elderly lady, she had been robbed and convinced her to help warn her neighbour.

Her neighbour also let them in to check her flat. However both victims were robbed of around £1,800 between them and one victim also found her bank card, cheque book and a photo frame was missing.

Police are reminding people to challenge anyone who knocks on your front door and ask for ID which you can look at properly if they claim to be from a company.

If you feel suspicious or think what they are doing is wrong call 999 immediately.

If you saw these men in the area please call us on 101 quoting serial 1436 of 14/12.
