An 84-year-old woman has had jewellery stolen by a bogus caller to her home in Ochilview Place.
The crime took place between 2.30pm and 3pm on Thursday, August 2 when a man offering to buy gold entered her house and stole items of jewellery.
At the same time another man was seen to visit houses in the same area distributing leaflets with ABERDEEN GOLD written on them.
Police are keen to trace both men. The first is believed to be about 30 years of age, 5'10 tall, medium build, with short dark curly hair and a chubby face with long sideburns joining into a beard. He presents himself as well-mannered and was wearing a dark suit, shirt and tie.
The second man is believed to be between 40 and 50 years old, 5'8-5'10 tall, medium build and may have an English accent. This man was also well presented.
A Central Scotland Police spokesperson said: “The public are reminded to verify the identification of anyone attending at their house offering any form of service.”
