Rogue Trader Alert For Ballyhackamore Area

PSNI Crest 300x300 Rogue Trader Alert For Ballyhackamore AreaAfter three men were detained in the Ballyhackamore area for burglary and conspiracy to defraud, police warn of the dangers that these doorstep rogues pose….

“Rogue traders specifically go out of their way to target the older or more vulnerable members of our community,” Victoria Neighbourhood Policing Inspector, Angus Mairs said.

“Sadly, many older and vulnerable people still fall victim to rogue workmen who may offer to seal tarmac driveways, complete garden work or replace guttering.

“They normally do not carry identification, are reluctant to give an estimate in writing and will normally ask for cash.

“In addition, some of these criminals will work in teams to carry our distraction burglaries, with one or more people creating a distraction offering work or services, while others simply gain access to a property to steal valuable items.”

Inspector Mairs added: “If you see someone acting suspiciously note down any important details such as a description or car registration and contact police immediately.”
