A man attended the address and entered the property through the rear laundry.

The occupant approached the man and thought that he was a tradesman contracted to do work on the property.

She left the man in the laundry and it is believed that he boxed up a number of bottles of alcohol stored there and left the premises with them.

The offender is perceived to be Caucasian, about 30-year-old, medium build and with light coloured short hair.

Police have released a computer generated image of a man that they believe may be able to assist with their enquires.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
