Police have issued a warning after a car with veterinary drugs in the boot was stolen.
About 1.30pm on Saturday a 45-year-old woman pulled her Toyota Yaris into her driveway on Millhouse Road in Aveley where she spotted two men in her husband's Holden Calais.
The Calais had been driven across the front yard, including a garden bed, and into the backyard, to allegedly load up items stolen from the home.
The woman stopped her car in front of the Calais in attempt to block the men.
The offenders then drove at her attempting to nudge the car out of the way, causing damage to both vehicles.
The woman reversed out of the way fearing for the safety of her 8-year-old child in the car.
Veterinary drugs were stored in the boot of the stolen vehicle and police are warning they could be fatal if consumed by humans.
The driver of the stolen vehicle is described as having olive or tanned skin with thick, dark curly hair and between the ages of 18 and 25.
The passenger is of a similar description, only with straight hair.
The Holden Calais' registration number is 1BFI445.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
