Burglars break into pensioner's home

A vulnerable 98-year-old man was burgled in his home in Gillingham, Kent last week.

Antique items were stolen on Wednesday, August 7 while the victim, who is disabled, was attending a hospital appointment.

The break-in happened between 11.30am and 2.30pm and it is believed entry was gained through a rear door.

DC Sasha Monck said: "This break-in caused considerable distress to the victim who is also very vulnerable.

"The items stolen may not even be worth much money but they are of significant sentimental value."
