Arrest in frauds probe

Have your say

A BALBY man has been arrested and charged with 14 fraud offences against elderly residents in Doncaster.

Police detained Ryan Harris, aged 26, of Cedar Road, last Wednesday evening in Balby soon after patrol officers in Balby received reports of a fraud offence.

They have been investigating offences committed in Balby, Edlington, Hexthorpe and Intake, where a man was alleged to have targeted elderly residents in order to fraudulently obtain cash by claiming an elderly grandmother had been taken ill and he needed money urgently to pay for a taxi.

Harris has been remanded in custody to appear before magistrates today.
