Three burglars tricked their way into the home of an elderly woman before stealing rings from her bedroom.
Two men and a woman called at a house in Bethulie Road, Normanton, at about 2pm on Sunday, October 25.
The woman asked if the 85-year-old victim would like some gardening doing, while the two men said they needed to check inside.
The victim later realised that an emerald eternity ring and a diamond ring had been stolen from a bedroom.
One of the men was white, in his late 50s, was wearing a cap with very short hair on the sides of his head. The second man was in his late 20s. The woman was mid-30s and was wearing a onesie.
