Police have released photographs of rare soldier figurines stolen by conmen from a pensioner's home in Kew.
Both of the men are white, aged about 30 years and have London accents.
One is around 6ft 1ins with dark short hair, receding on top and has large sideburns. He was wearing a grey/white t-shirt, beige knee-length shorts and trainers.
The other is 5ft 9ins, slim with dark short hair. He was wearing a t-shirt and jeans at the time.
Police are searching for two men who conned their way into a pensioner's flat and stole rare figurines and cash.
On 5 July, at about 11.30 am, two men who posed as builders, knocked on the 82-year-old's home, which was due to have renovations, in The Avenue, Kew.
The pensioner, therefore, thought the two men were genuine when he was asked to go with one to withdraw cash while the other stayed to "take measurements" for building work.
After the victim handed over the cash we was asked to wait in a coffee shop for a few moments.
He was left there for two hours. When he returned home he saw his collection of rare army figures has been stolen from a cabinet.
