A WOMAN is wanted in connection with the theft of an elderly man's pension.
Police have released CCTV images to identify the woman after a 72-year-old victim was persuaded to hand over his Post Office card.
On 4 February the woman withdrew £180 and on 5 February another £106 was taken, both from post offices in Swindon.
PC Nia Tregunna, from Swindon North Community Policing Team, said: “This is a horrible crime which has left a vulnerable man out of pocket and confused about what has happened to him.
“We are making sure he is being provided with the appropriate support and are trying to see if the money can be refunded to him.
“The suspect has been posing as his granddaughter and this is simply not true. She is not his friend nor a member of his family, but someone who has been taking advantage of him for financial gain.
“We would like to speak to the person in these CCTV images so if you know who she is or where she is, please contact police.”
Anyone with information should contact PC Tregunna on 101, quoting crime reference 54190012363. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
