Stockport Express - - News -

PO­LICE in Stock­port have is­sued a warn­ing to res­i­dents about a bo­gus work­man op­er­at­ing in the bor­ough.

The man has been re­ported as tar­get­ing el­derly peo­ple in the area and ask­ing them to pay up front for tree or gar­den work ‘with no in­ten­tion of car­ry­ing out said work’.

Ac­cord­ing to a warn­ing pub­lished on the GMP Stock­port Face­book page, the of­fender is de­scribed as a white male, around 5ft 8in tall, of slim build, around 50 years old with short dark hair, clean shaven and with a long, thin face.

He also spoke with an Ir­ish ac­cent.

In one par­tic­u­lar in­ci­dent, when an el­derly woman was tar­geted, he was wear­ing a mid-green jacket and match­ing trousers with a logo on the left chest area.

The logo was de­scribed as two let­ters in gold on a brown back­ground.

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers, anony­mously, on 0800 555 111.
