THIEVES ROB ELDERLY CLYDEBANK WOMAN OF LIFE SAVINGS

Detectives in Clydebank are hunting for two men after an elderly woman was conned out of her life savings. 

Around midday on Wednesday (16/5/18) two men pretended to be workmen in order to gain access to the home of an 86 year old woman in Melfort Avenue

One man distracted the elderly lady with a story about what work needed to be done in her home, whilst the other man stole a four-figure sum of money.

The first suspect is described as in his 40/50s with white/grey hair brushed forward.  He  is around 6 ft. tall and of average build.  He was wearing a long blue sleeved top and spoke with a local accent. 

The second man is described as around 5 ft. 9 inches in height with medium dark length hair.  

Officers have been carrying out door-to-door enquiries and are checking CCTV footage and ask that anyone with information calls them on 101.
