Missing furniture sparks Sydney search

Two men have been described as Australia's dumbest criminals after being caught on camera allegedly stealing outdoor furniture from a home in Sydney's south.

Police released the images of the men as part of a public appeal for information about the missing furniture.

Police said the men pulled up in a white ute outside a home on Marion Street, Georges Hall, at 3.30pm on September 28.

They allegedly took the four-piece grey and white cane setting from the home's front verandah, loaded it on to the ute and left.

One man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 30 to 40, of a medium build, and with a shaved head. He has a number of distinctive tattoos.

The other man depicted is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged 40 to 50, of a medium build and with grey hair.

They were travelling in a vehicle described as a white older model utility similar to a 1986-1996 Mitsubishi Triton.

The images, released on the NSW Police Force Facebook page, attracted scorn with one poster branding the men the country's dumbest crims.

Another noted that the bald man's tattoos made him easier to identify.

Police have asked anyone with information about the incident or who recognises the men to contact Crime Stoppers.
