THIS man is wanted for stealing more than £500 from a 94-year-old in a distraction burglary.

The suspect at first helped the man at the till while he shopped in the Co-op at The Hard, Portsmouth.

Police believe he then followed the man out of the shop, walked back to his home and went inside with him.

The victim later realised the man had stolen over £500. Now police have released this CCTV image of the suspect in the burglary, which happened between 10.35am and 11.20am on December 30.

Detective Constable Kristy O’Brien said: ‘If anyone recognises the man in the images we urge you to make contact as a matter of urgency.’
