Detectives are seeking two men who appear to have made a clean getaway after taking a £750 steam cleaner from a business in Ealing.
CCTV footage published by police appears to show one of the men holding open a door while the other rolls the Karchur 550m Eco steam cleaner out of the premises in Park Royal Road, Acton.
Police said the alleged burglary took place on Tuesday January 26, at around 3pm.
They said two men walked into the rear of the business from where they stole the cleaner, which was loaded into a burgundy Range Rover Discovery and driven off by a third man.
The first suspect seen in the footage is described as a white man, aged in his early 30s, around 5ft6in and of skinny build. He had short brown hair and was wearing a black Nike hooded top.
The second man, who is also white, is of large build and is believed to be aged in his early 20s. He had short ginger hair and was wearing a dark blue chequered shirt and white trainers.
Anyone with information is asked to call Ealing CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting the reference number 2502254/16.
