Police hunt two conmen

Have your say

POLICE are hunting two men who conned their way into a Barnsley pensioner’s home claiming they needed to check his plumbing system.

Officers investigating the incident believe they were bogus officials who were looking for cash or valuables to steal, although nothing has been found to be missing.

They called at the house on Dodworth Road, Dodworth, and one man started checking the plumbing system while the other went upstairs.

One of the men was white, spoke with an Irish accent and was around 5ft 10ins tall, of an average build and had short dark hair.

The other was also white.

Anyone with information about the incident at 8.30pm on Tuesday, May 31, should call South Yorkshire Police on 0114 2202020, ask for Barnsley Intelligence and quote BX/75/2011.
