Billy Jeeves, 28, is being sought by police following the burglary, committed at an address in South Park Crescent, Hither Green at around 12.45am on Wednesday, April 4.

Jeeves has links to Orpington and Swanley as well as Cambridge.

Police also want to hear from anybody who may have seen a vehicle, a white Vauxhall Astra van with registration GU52 AXT, in the days and hours before and after the burglary.

The van was found burnt out on the evening of Saturday, April 7 in Star Lane, near Hockingdon Lane in Orpington.

Henry Vincent, 38, who has lived in Swanley and Orpington, was killed after breaking into the home of Richard Osborn-Brooks, and Jeeves is being sought in connection with the burglary.

Mr Osborn-Brooks, 78, found two men inside the address, and a struggle ensued, which led to the death of Vincent.

Anyone with information on Jeeves’ whereabouts is asked to call 020 8721 4205 or 101, or to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
