POLICE are looking for three men who carried out a distraction burglary in Britannia Road, Ipswich.

The trio was comprised of one man described as very respectable-looking, one with upward-pointing eyebrows and one with a large mouth.

The three struck at the home of an 82-year-old where the respectable-looking man approached the owner and said his dog had chased an injured cat into the garden.

The man helped the visitor search for a while before noticing two further men in the house, who made off with cash stolen from the home.

The respectable-looking man is described as white, in his mid twenties and around 5ft 6ins to 5ft 8ins tall and of medium build with short fair hair and clean shaven, and wearing a three-quarter-length light-coloured, thin shower-proof style coat and dark trousers.

The second man is described as scruffy, white, around 20 years old, 5ft 8ins tall and of slim build, with collar-length dark wavy untidy hair, unshaven and wearing a black and white stripy jumper.
