These CCTV images could hold the key to a string of burglaries across Barking and Dagenham.
Police released them this week – a month on from the crimes, the first of which happened in July.
Over the course of three weeks, cash, credit cards, mobile phones, jewellery and computers were taken from shops and a flat.
The first two raids happened on July 15. A man posing as a workman went into a shop in Freshwater Road, Dagenham, and took £200 cash and credit cards from an office area.
The same day, a flat in Thaxted House, Siviter Way, Dagenham, was burgled.
As well as credit cards, cash and a wallet, the raiders also took a games console, two mobile phones, jewellery, a passport and a driving licence.
Meanwhile, another shop in Ripple Road, Barking, was subjected to criminal damage.

Six days later, July 21, a man took £370 from the till at a Longbridge Road shop.
He simply leant across the counter and took the money, police said.
Finally, a £500 laptop was taken from a shop in Becontree Avenue, Dagenham, on August 9
Now police have released these seven images showing men they believe may have information about the crimes.
They are urging anyone who recognises the faces to call the Met on 101 and ask for Barking and Dagenham police, or to phone Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
