A man has been jailed for a string of burglaries targeting elderly and disabled victims, some as old as 92.
John Connors was sentenced to eight years in prison at Isleworth Crown Court. He was found guilty of eleven offences in total across the East Acton and Hammersmith areas.
Mr Connors would trick his way into his victims' homes pretending to be from the 'water board', then distract them while he stole valuables and cash. Many of his victims were pensioners aged over 75 suffering from physical disabilities, including blindness.
Detective Constable Andy Griffin said Connors was a "career criminal" who "preyed" on vulnerable victims.
