Police in Merseyside are searching for a man in connection with a distraction burglary in which an 82-year-old had his pension stolen.

Police want to speak to Stuart Robert Vest about the incident in Huyton on May 6th.

An elderly man was at home in watching TV one morning when a man knocked at the door and invited himself in.

Once inside, the resident offered him a cup of tea and while in the kitchen, the offender stole several hundred pounds from the victim's jacket pocket.

It was only after the man left that the victim noticed his pension money had gone.

Detectives want to speak to 56-year-old Vest, who was born in Bury and has links to the Wigan area of Greater Manchester.

Anyone who knows where he is should call Detective Constable David Naylor at Knowsley CID on 0151 777 6568 or leave information anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
