Elderly sisters robbed in distraction burglary

Two elderly sisters have had cash, a savings book and jewellery stolen during a distraction burglary in east Belfast.

A man called at the house in the Connsbrook area at about 1600 on Friday and claimed to want to talk to them about their security.

He kept both women talking in one room whilst a second man searched the house.

After the pair had left one of the sisters noticed the items were missing.
