A lone male called to the home of an elderly person and impersonated a Garda. He showed some form of makeshift Garda I.D. and produced a sum of money and enquired did the elderly person own this money.

His intention was to find out where this person kept cash.

Thankfully the injured party in question was wise to this scam and closed the front door.

The second incident occurred at Carnaross, Kells, Co. Meath also on the same morning with matching details of the Virginia incident.
