A burglar posing as a social worker has conned her way into a house in Liskeard.

The woman in her thirties left when challenged - but police reckon she took the back door key.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Between 2.30pm and 5.30pm on Friday 6th December 2013 a burglary occurred at a property in Liskeard.

"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.

"Anyone with any information or who recognises the woman pictured should call police on 101 quoting reference BD/13/1578.

"Liskeard police would also like to take this opportunity to remind people that they should always request formal identification from any visitors to their property."

They have released an efit of the woman they want to speak to.
