A pensioner walked into his kitchen to find three men in his home who stole cash from him.

The 78-year-old victim was left shaken after he found the men in his kitchen after they climbed through a window at 4.30pm on Tuesday, July 16.

The offenders claimed to be police officers but when the victim tried to call police, his phone was taken from him.

The first offender is a white man, mid twenties, of average build with very short brown hair. He was wearing a white short sleeved t-shirt.

The second man was white, in his late thirties, clean shaven, around 5ft 11ins. He was wearing glasses, a striped shirt and smart trousers.

All of the offenders had a slight Irish accent.
