"A woman gained entry to the property by informing the resident that she was a social worker, but when challenged later quickly left. The victim later discovered that her back door key had been taken.
"The suspect is described as white, about 5’7” tall, 30-35 years old, approx a size 10 , wearing black jeans, cream top and a smart black jacket. Most notably she is described as having a distinctive tattoo of a heart on the back of her right hand just above the small finger.
