POLICE are trying to trace two men who were knocking on doors and claiming to be window cleaners around the time a car was stolen from outside a house in Hillmorton.

The pair were active on Percival Road on the day a BMW 318i saloon was stolen from the driveway of a house on the street between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday (March 10).

The people living there returned home to find burglars had broken in to the back of the property and stolen jewellery and the keys to the car before driving off in it.

Door to door enquiries made by police revealed that at around 1.15pm on the same afternoon, two people claiming to be window cleaners were calling at houses in the road.

Both were wearing black gloves and were travelling in a black car. They appeared to have no cleaning equipment with them and said they had run out of business cards when asked for them.

DC Mick Watkins said: "These people may well be genuine, and if that is the case, we are keen to identify them as soon as possible so they can be eliminated from our enquiries."

One of the men is described as white, around 18-years-old, with blonde hair and wearing black tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

The second man is described as an older, between 30 and 40-years-old, bald and of a stocky build.
