Conmen grab OAP’s money

Have your say

A PENSIONER had cash snatched from her hands by two conmen who called at her door asking for payment for guttering repairs they claimed they had carried out to her home.

The 86-year-old, of Hillside, Whitwell, Chesterfield, was in the process of counting out the money to pay the men when they grabbed all the notes from her hands and ran off.

They jumped into a cream coloured car and sped away.

The men were white, aged between 30 and 40, and were wearing dark clothing.

Witnesses to the incident between 1.45pm and 2pm on Tuesday, or anyone with information about the identity of the conmen, should call police on 0345 123 3333.
