Police want to trace these men after a pair of con artists claiming to be from Romford stole a black Range Rover Sport.
It was taken from an estate agent’s shop in Lewisham, south London, on Saturday, July 6, at about 8.30pm.
Its owner advertised it on Auto Trader and received a call from a man who said he was from Romford and wanted to view it.
He arranged to meet the man, who turned up with an accomplice, outside the shop.
The pair asked the victim to take them for a test drive. The victim started the engine before leaving the car to lock up his shop.
