AN IM­POSTER pos­ing as a Wick­low County Coun­cil worker forced his way into a Dar­gan St. House last week­end.

The fraud­ster knocked on the door and a man liv­ing in the house an­swered.

He pre­tended that he needed to check the taps and other equip­ment in­side the house, ac­cord­ing to Su­per­in­ten­dent Michael Lerni­han of Bray Garda Sta­tion.

'Some peo­ple can be quite force­ful,' ex­plained Supt. Lerni­han, 'de­spite on­go­ing ad­vice to al­ways check cre­den­tials if some­one comes to the door claim­ing to be of­fi­cial.'

If any­one has any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion what­so­ever re­gard­ing the iden­tity of the afore­men­tioned thief they should con­tact Bray Garda Sta­tion on the fol­low­ing num­ber: (01) 6665300.
